Residual stress evaluation by pulsed neutron stress measurement for cruciform welded joints treated with ultrasonic impact method

Suzuki, Tamaki*; Okawa, Teppei*; Harjo, S.  ; Sasaki, Toshihiko*

The residual stress state inside the cruciform welded joints were measured using the pulsed neutron stress measurement method. The points of interest in this study are the weld toe and its interior. We also compared the cases with and without ultrasonic impact treatment (UIT), which is expected as a fatigue strength improvement technology. Furthermore, the case where tensile stress or compressive stress was applied after UIT treatment was also examined. The applied stresses at this time were 75% or 85% of the yield point, respectively. From the above, we considered the cause of the change in the residual stress on the surface after UIT treatment, which was clarified in the preliminary experiment, in the early stage of fatigue. As a result, the load after the UIT treatment caused plastic deformation in a part of the inside, which caused the redistribution of residual stress.
