The objective of this project is the development of a System for Automatic Residual Stress Mapping By UT of Austenitic Stainless Steel, using innovative technologies (Automatic Scanning Real Time Mapping).
The results obtained with this new system will be validated by conventional methods, like X-Ray diffraction and Hole Drilling. Likewise the cast-to -cast variation of some material properties, such as yield stress, tensile stress, grain size, inclusion content and nature, chemical composition and hardness, thought to affect the UT propagation in the material, and therefore the results obtained with the new method, will be also investigated.
