Thermoelastic stress analysis of titanium components and simultaneous assessment of residual stress

The thermoelastic effect describes a linear relationship between change in body temperature and state of stress in the presence of adiabatic conditions. This approach considers the material properties constant with temperature, which is not correct for all materials. Experimental results and a review of the theory, especially for the titanium and some alloys of aluminium, have shown that the thermoelastic signal is also dependent of mean stress of the material. The use of titanium in various fields of application makes interesting use of thermoelastic technique as full field stress analysis technique. However, it is necessary to make a correction of the measure in relation to the mean stress. The possibility to measure the mean stress allows also an evaluation of residual stresses on the surface of titanium components.
