Experimental Errors Associated with the X-ray Measurement of Residual Stress

Part of the Materials Research and Engineering book series (MATERIALS)


The basic methods of residual stress measurements with x-rays and neutrons, as well as the theory underlying the measurements, have been covered in the previous chapters. In any scientific experiment, however, the error associated with the measured quantity is just as important as the measured value itself and must be known for the correct interpretation of the results. Evaluation of errors by theoretical fomiulae is also of primary importance in automating a measurement
