CAVACO, Marco Antonio Martins. A hybrid technique for residual stress analysis through stress function fitting. Lat. Am. j. solids struct. (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.8, n.3, pp. 259-264. ISSN 1679-7825. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1679-78252011000300004.
This work presents a hybrid experimental theoretical technique for residual stresses analysis of mechanical components. It was used the blind hole technique along with the Electronic Speckle Pattern Interferometry (ESPI) method and Airy stress functions for the determination of the principal stress components. Displacement information is fitted in order to extract Airy stress function coefficients. The results demonstrate that this technique is of great utility to determine the average principal stress and local stress gradients.
