Paper Abstract

The paper outlines a completely new technique, which has been given the name of TERSA, an acronym of Thermal Evaluation for Residual Stress Analysis, which could provide the basis of an instrument for the remote, non-contacting and non-destructive determination of static and residual stresses in engineering components, assemblies and structures and be applicable to both ferrous and non-ferrous metals and also to plastics. Some experimental work which has been carried out at ARE Portsdown over the past few years is described and results are presented which confirm the principle of the proposal.
