Understanding How Components Fail (Third Edition)
Chapter 4: Residual Stresses
Residual, or locked-in internal, stresses are regions of misfit within a metal part or assembly that can cause distortion and fracture just as can the more obvious applied, or service, stresses. This chapter describes the fundamental facts about residual stresses and discusses the basic mechanisms of residual stress formation: thermal, transformational, mechanical, and chemical.
