Residual stresses affect the behavior of the mechanical components and can compromise the structural and dimensional stability.
For this reason it is appropriate to carry out regular checks and tests to measure its strength.
The problem is particularly reflected in the resistance to fracture of the components: the presence of residual stresses in the materials facilitates the propagation of cracks and therefore reduces the duration of a mechanical component.
