Chapter 20: Residual Stresses, Distortion, and Heat Treatment
Temperature and deformation gradients developed in the course of manufacturing can have undesired effects on the microstructures along their path; the two most common being residual stress and distortion. This chapter discusses these manufacturing-related problems and how they can be minimized by heat treatments. It also provides information on residual stress evaluation and prediction techniques.
