Residual Stress Measurement Laboratory

Residual Stress Measurement Laboratory
Innerpage Title Banner

The Residual Stress Measurement Laboratory is used for centre hole and incremental hole drilling (IHD), block removal, splitting and layering (BRSL).

This laboratory provides determination of the near-surface and through-thickness residual stress distribution in welded metallic components, providing designers and engineers with long-range and local residual stress data, which can be used in an Engineering Critical Assessment (ECA).
