A simple method to estimate residual stresses
What is it about?
Residual stresses may develop in metal structures as a byproduct of manufacturing or a result of service regimen. These stresses affect the total stress state in the structure, and thus may influence its resistance to crack development. The presented method allows for relatively fast calculation of residual stresses in bodies subjected to cyclic loads.
Why is it important?
The residual stress determination method allowing for speedy calculation of these stresses may be of help to designers and people involved in maintenance of metallic structures subjected to cyclic loads.
