Residual stresses present after fabrication, welding, forming, and other industrial processes can be dangerous if they are too high, because they combine with the operating stresses. In this method, a very carefully drilled hole is surrounded by strain gauges that measure the change in strain in three axes as the hole is drilled.
Center hole drilling allow for very accurate determination of surface residual stress at depths up to millimeters.
At G2MT Labs, we developed and perfected our own internal practice because we needed these measurements ourselves, and now we are proud to offer them commercially. Residual stress analysis is performed by drilling inside the center of the rosette strain gauge.
The hole drilling method works by removing layer after layer from a small hole surrounded by strain gauges. As the hole is drilled, stresses within the part change the shape of r837 hole and influence the strain gauges, leading to slight distortions of the hole.

These slight distortions are read by the strain gauges and can be converted into residual stress analyses through the methods described in ASTM E A. The hole drilling procedure starts with careful alignment and positioning of the drilling tool tip via a precision milling guide with a microscope.
Drilling is performed in layers and measurements are made at staggered depths, typically up to asstm depth equal to the diameter of the drilling bit. Ast, drilling increment is recorded by strain gauges, enabling a calculation of strains in three-dimensions through your component. The entire process, including the calculations for determining residual stress levels, is described in ASTM E ASTM E — Residual Stress Measurement by Center Hole Drilling Residual stresses present after fabrication, welding, forming, and other industrial processes can be dangerous if they are too high, because they combine with the operating stresses.
Samples can be prepped and ready in just a few minutes. Depth profiles available within an hour. O ur team includes metallurgists, fracture mechanics experts, and FEA capabilities to help you understand and implement the data.
Our on-site team can head your way within hours when time is of the essence. Small hole drilled for residual stress measurements.
What happens next depends on you; some customers only need the data and run their own analyses. If you need even deeper residual stress analysis, G2MT also offers non-destructive stress analysis that can evaluate through the entire depth of your components up to several inches in most materials.
