    Handbook of Measurement of Residual Stresses


    This four-year project of the Residual Stress Technical Division covers all aspects of how the state of residual stress affects the mechanical properties of material and its structures. The failure of a structure or a mechanical component is not only due to externally applied loading. Understanding the role played by residual stress is vital to complete failure analysis. The contents include: Hole Drilling and Ring Core Method, Layer Removal Method, Sectioning Methods, X-Ray Diffraction Method, Control of Accuracy and Precision of Stress Measurement, Application of Neutron Diffraction to the Measurement of Residual Stress and Strain, Ultrasonic Methods, Magnetic Methods, and Comparative Study of Diriment Techniques.

    Handbook on Residual Stress

    $175.00 $150.00

    Residual stress is usually defined as the stress that remains in mechanical parts which are not subjected to any external stresses. Residual stress exists in practically all rigid parts, whether metallic or not (wood, polymer, glass, ceramic, etc.). It is the result of the metallurgical and mechanical history of each point in the part and the part as a whole during its manufacture.

    Peterson’s Stress Concentration Factors

    $175.00 $165.00

    Peterson's Stress Concentration Factors establishes and maintains a system of data classification for all of the applications of stress and strain analysis and expedites their synthesis into CAD applications. Substantially revised and completely updated, this book presents stress concentration factors both graphically and with formulas. It also employs computer-generated art in its portrayal of the various relationships between the stress factors affecting machines or structures. These charts provide a visual representation of the machine or structure under consideration as well as graphs of the various stress concentration factors at work. They can be easily accessed via an illustrated table of contents that permits identification based on the geometry and loading of the location of a factor.
