Residual stress laboratory and stress analysis center
Residual stress measurement services
Residual stresses do affect the behaviour of the mechanical components and can compromise its structural and dimensional stability.
For this reason it is appropriate to carry out regular checks and tests to measure its strength.
The main issues connected with residual stresses are particularly reflected in the resistance to the mechanical fatigue and fracture of the components: the presence of residual stresses in the materials facilitates the propagation of cracks and therefore reduces the life-time of a mechanical component.
