Measurement and Simulation of Residual Strain in a Laser Welded Titanium Ring
Elastic residual strains were measured in a laser welded commercially pure titanium ring using a non-destructive neutron diffraction technique in order to determine the resolution of this method for the characterization of small laser welds. In addition, these measurements were used to validate calculations made using residual strain data obtained from simulation of the residual stress near the weld. The measured strains were in good agreement with the simulated results.
