• Residual Stress Database


As a leading provider of residual stress measurement services worldwide we have accumulated a wealth of measurement data from all engineering industries.

VEQTER Database - Graph

Like us, our clients have also generated copious amounts of data and a central system was needed to intelligently catalogue and manage that data for easy searching and comparison, now and in the future. VEQTER’s Residual Stress Database has made that possible.

Developed with the support of AREVA, EDF Energy, Rolls-Royce and the US NRC, the Residual Stress Database allows their skilled engineers to quickly and easily find the data needed to support their critical decision making, whilst confident in using the most up-to-date version. As well as increasing productivity, the engineers gain confidence in the data used via comparison and benchmarking against other datasets, private and published.

As well as a source of residual stress measurement and modelling information, the database also promotes creativity and productivity via its collaborative workspace where engineers, clients, consultants and suppliers can collectively organise and share their data.
