Residual stresses must be considered in any structural integrity assessment, if only to demonstrate that they are insignificant.
Engineers must be aware of the techniques available for measurement, characterisation and testing.  How can your organisation improve its methods for detecting and handling residual stresses? When do they matter?
Residual stresses form a self-equilibrating stress distribution that exists in the absence of any mechanical loading.  They are created during fabrication or by any loading that causes yielding of the material.
Focusing on safety and integrity assessments, this seminar discusses creep and fracture processes relating to operation temperature, assessment and measurement with relevant for a range of industrial sectors and techniques, particularly to engineers working in:
  • Nuclear power
  • Conventional power
  • Off-shore and marine
  • Aerospace
  • Pressure systems
  • Structrual integrity
  • Welding, casting and forging
