Overview

The mission of the Residual Stress Technical Division (RSTD) is to advance the state of knowledge in the area of experimental techniques for residual stress measurement and experimental characterization of residual stress effects on the performances of materials and engineering systems. Activities include organizing sessions, symposia, short courses, and reports and publications on these topics. The division meets each year at the SEM Annual Conference. Our work on residual stress analysis overlaps with the efforts of other divisions resulting in a cooperative effort between researchers from different areas of experimental mechanics.
