Abstract
Cold working processes are well established for improving the fatigue life of critical load bearing components. The resulting unloading residual stresses are beneficial but there is now a need to nondestructively quantify and verify their levels in engineering components. It is therefore the purpose of this investigation to evaluate the capability of the leaky Lamb wave technique to characterize residual stresses. The component is ted as a transversely isotropic layered solid with wave velocities varying in each layer. Modeling indicates that the technique can characterize depth varying residual stresses. Experimental work indicates that the technique has potential as a quality assurance tool.
