A Study on Residual Stresses of Two Laser Localized Hardened Steels

  • R. Lin
  • T. Ericsson


Cylinders made of two low alloy steels were laser single-pass hardened. The magnitude and distribution of residual stresses in the superficial layers across the hardened tracks were investigated by using the x-ray diffraction technique. Analogues with welding residual stress distribution have been made. The origins of residual stresses have been discussed.
