Experimental residual stress analysis in layer composites

Department of Material Mechanics, Modeling and Simulation

The residual stress analysis is the key to ensure the lifetime of coatings and composites.

Residual stresses are related to the thermophysical properties of substrate and coating materials and occur after the coated component has undergone thermal spraying and machining processes. All residual stresses in layer composites result from different individual stress mechanisms occurring during the manufacturing process, mainly based on heat and mass transfer during the coating deposition. Using the hole-milling-and-drilling method, residual stress fields can be measured in a quasi-nondestructive way over the drilling depth with high resolution.
