Residual stress analysis by x-ray diffraction
Quantifying the residual stresses of a component on the client’s premises using a portable diffraction system to prevent the occurrence of failures.
Assess residual stresses for both new and used parts:
- Validate repair methods based on welding
- Qualify products
- Characterize finishing treatment, stress relieving treatment, etc.
- Monitor constraints in revenue service
- Quantify residual austenite formed during poorly controlled heat treatments that can cause component breakages (bearings, springs)
