Advances in Stress Measurement with Portable X-Ray Diffraction: Uncertainties in Normal and Shear Stress Determination on Mild Steel Pipe

November 01, 2017

To test the accuracy of residual stress measurements made with portable X-ray devices, measured normal and shear stresses were compared with the applied (true) values for accuracy assessment. From those results, practical measurement and analysis protocols for precise and accurate stress measurements are proposed.
