This paper deals with the measurement of residual stress produced during turning operation. CNC turning is a machining process to remove unwanted material from the workpiece to produce desired rotational parts. Turning is a widely used cutting process in the manufacturing industry, and thus, continuous research is going on to optimize it because of cutting high-performance dynamics, workpiece materials, and cutting tools. Turning operation was performed on H13 tool steel workpiece dimensions 110 × Ø22 mm on CNC Lathe machine tools. H13 tool steel is used for manufacturing of friction stir welding and processing tool. The main aim of the current study is to determine the residual stress using PulsetecµX-360n portable stress analyzer setup, and Abaqus 6.14 software was used to simulate the turning process. Experimental tests were performed on H13 tool steel materials which are in form of FSW/FSP tool, which consists of different pin profiles. The experimental outcomes are then compared with the outcomes obtained from the simulation. Experimental results validate the simulation results for both the tool pin profiles which are lying within the acceptable range.
