• Technique Selection


There are many techniques available for the measurement of residual stresses in engineering components and no single technique provides the full range of capabilities.

Therefore it is incredibly important to consider the individual measurement application and desired results in order to select the best technique or techniques. In many cases the use of a number of complimentary techniques will provide the optimum results, for example, using complimentary surface and through-thickness measurement techniques.
