The spatial distribution of residual stress in a thick section girth weld (432 mm outside diameter, 65 mm thick) joining two ex-service AISI type 3l6H austenitic stainless steel forgings has been characterised by both measurement and modelling, Measurements of residual stresses in two, nominally identical, fabricated components were carried out using X-ray diffraction, Deep Hole drilling, Surface or Centre Hole drilling, Neutron Diffraction and Block removal, splitting and layering (BRSL).
