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.

David R. Chettle, a professor at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, uses X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy for the in vivo measurement of toxic elements in human subjects, with the goal of developing devices that can be used to investigate the possible health effects of toxin exposure. He recently spoke to us about his research.
