In January 2021 the ASTM Commission has released a new version of the Standard Test Method for Determining Residual Stresses by the Hole-Drilling Strain-Gage Method, named ASTM E837-20.
The main update of this version is the introduction of the residual stress calculation both for uniform and non-uniform stress field also in case of intermediate thickness of the specimen under test.
For this reason SINT Technology has developed a new version of its Evaluation Software, fully compliant to the ASTM E837-20.
Main Features of EVAL 7.3
- Introduction of the uniform stress calculation both for “Thick” and “Intermediate” thickness workpieces according to ASTM E837-20.
- Introduction of the non-uniform stress calculation both for “Thick” and “Intermediate” thickness workpieces according to ASTM E837-20.
- Extension of the main EVAL Software features (Viewers, Report and Uncertainty) to the new ASTM calculation algorithms.
