Service life and performance of the case-hardened machine parts are greatly dependent on the residual stress state in the surface layers which directly affects the fatigue behavior. Recently, all industrial sectors have been requested for a fast and non-destructive determination of residual stress. This study aims to monitor of the variations in surface residual stress distributions in the carburized 19CrNi5H steels by means of non-destructive and semi-destructive measurement techniques, Magnetic Barkhausen Noise (MBN), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), and Electronic Speckle Pattern Interferometry (ESPI) assisted hole drilling. Microstructural investigation by optical and scanning electron microscopy, hardness measurements, and spectroscopy analysis were also conducted. To comprehend the differences in the surface residual stress state, 19CrNi5H steel samples were carburized at 900 degrees C for 8, 10 and 13 hours, and then, tempered in the range of 180 degrees C and 600 degrees C. Residual stress measurements carried out by XRD and ESPI assisted hole drilling showed that the compressive residual stress state exists for the case-hardened samples throughout the case depth regions, and the magnitude of the compressive residual stress decreases as the tempering temperature increases. MBN measurements showed that the BN activity increases with decreasing carburization time and increasing tempering temperature. It was concluded that MBN technique could be used to measure the surface residual stress distributions with a proper calibration operation.

Review of Residual Stress Measurement by Magnetic Barkhausen Noise Technique
Gür, Cemil Hakan (2018-01-01)
Determination of residual stress state is important for quality, integrity, and service performance of the components and structures. Almost all manufacturing processes cause considerable amounts of residual stress; thus, any process or product design ignoring it involves a risk for distortion or early failure. Among the existing methods, the magnetic Barkhausen noise method has been gaining attention for measuring residual stresses nondestructively in ferromagnetic materials. It is sensitive to the interac...

Application of the Contour Method to Determine Axial Residual Stresses in Cold Extruded Steel Rods
Aydin, O.; Şimşir, Caner (2021-01-01)
Residual stresses in cold extruded parts play an important role in both component lifetime and succeeding in manufacturing performance. When a cold extruded part is used directly, the lifetime of the part depends on the residual stresses induced during cold extrusion. On the other hand, if the part is exposed to post operations such as machining, residual stresses may cause distortions. Despite their importance, there are only a few residual stress measurement methods to assess axial residual stresses in fu...
