The objectives and activities of the Residual Stress Technical Division are:
A meeting of the Residual Stress Technical Division (RSTD) was held during the 2012 SEM Annual Meeting, with approximately twenty four members in attendance. The RSTD officers for the 2012/2013 year remain the same: Adrian DeWald (Chair) and Gary Schajer (vice chair). Three residual stress sessions were held at the 2012 SEM meeting. The sessions were: Residual stress applications, non-destructive techniques for residual stress measurement, and advances in residual stress measurement methods.
The Residual Stress Technical Division continues to enjoy strong participation in the sessions and collaborations with other TDs within SEM. For 2013 we have planned a joint session with the Biological Systems and Materials Technical Division on residual stress in biological materials. Another good showing at the 2013 SEM meeting is anticipated.
