This test method covers a procedure for experimentally determining the effective elastic parameter, Eeff, for the evaluation of residual and applied stresses by X-ray diffraction techniques. The effective elastic parameter relates macroscopic stress to the strain measured in a particular crystallographic direction in polycrystalline samples. Eeff should not be confused with E, the modulus of elasticity. Rather, it is nominally equivalent to E/(1 + v) for the particular crystallographic direction, where v is Poisson's ratio. The effective elastic parameter is influenced by elastic anisotropy and preferred orientation of the sample material.
This test method is applicable to all X-ray diffraction instruments intended for measurements of macroscopic residual stress that use measurements of the positions of the diffraction peaks in the high back-reflection region to determine changes in lattice spacing.
This test method is applicable to all X-ray diffraction techniques for residual stress measurement, including single, double, and multiple exposure techniques.
