Residual Stress ECRS 5
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
Materials, as utilized, experience the effect of residual, internal stresses, as these are the outcome of the material synthesis and/or engineering, and/or application in practice. Understanding and control of residual stresses is a prerequisite for successful application of materials in wide ranging areas as corresponding to, e.g., the microelectronic industry (thin films) and the automotive industry (crankshafts).
The present book reports recent advances in experimental techniques for residual stress measurement, in modelling and numerical prediction of residual stresses, and in the investigation of the effects of residual stresses on material properties, in particular in practical applications. Covered are general aspects related to the methodology of experimental determination and calculation of residual stresses, as well as specific topics related to Surface Engineering, Fatigue, Stress in Products, and Composites. A special section has been devoted to the introduction of a standard for stress measurement by means of X-ray diffraction.
