Residual Stress Evaluation of Materials Manufactured by High-Energy Process

This paper presents several applications of the step by step hole drillling method for measuring residual stress distribution introduced in different components manufactured by the high energy process.

The first application concerns a NiCrAlY plasma sprayed coating. The influence of air plasma spraying, subatmospheric plasma spraying and post-treatment on the residual stress distribution is studied; the application of laser in mechanical engineering is also presented in the case of photonic peening(laser induced stress waves) and welding respectively for an aluminium alloy and a titanium alloy.
