    Significance and Use

    5.1 This test method covers a procedure for experimentally determining macroscopic residual stress tensor components of quasi-isotropic bearing steel materials by XRD. Here the stress components are represented by the tensor σij as shown in Eq 1 (1,5 p. 40). The stress strain relationship in any direction of a component is defined by Eq 2 with respect to the azimuth phi(φ) and polar angle psi(ψ) defined in Fig. 1 (1, p. 132).

    Equation E2860-20_3

    Equation E2860-20_4

    5.1.1 Alternatively, Eq 2 may also be shown in the following arrangement (2, p. 126):

    Equation E2860-20_5

    5.2 Using XRD and Bragg’s law, interplanar strain measurements are performed for multiple orientations. The orientations are selected based on a modified version of Eq 2, which is dictated by the mode used. Conflicting nomenclature may be found in literature with regard to mode names. For example, what may be referred to as a ψ (psi) diffractometer in Europe may be called a χ (chi) diffractometer in North America. The three modes considered here will be referred to as omega, chi, and modified-chi as described in 9.5.

    5.3 Omega Mode (Iso Inclination) and Chi Mode (Side Inclination)—Interplanar strain measurements are performed at multiple ψ angles along one φ azimuth (let φ = 0°) (Figs. 2 and 3), reducing Eq 2 to Eq 3. Stress normal to the surface (σ33) is assumed to be insignificant because of the shallow depth of penetration of X-rays at the free surface, reducing Eq 3 to Eq 4. Post-measurement corrections may be applied to account for possible σ33 influences (12.12). Since the σij values will remain constant for a given azimuth, the s1{hkl} term is renamed C.

    Equation E2860-20_6

    Equation E2860-20_7

    5.3.1 The measured interplanar spacing values are converted to strain using Eq 24, Eq 25, or Eq 26. Eq 4 is used to fit the strain versus sin2ψ data yielding the values σ11, τ13, and C. The measurement can then be repeated for multiple phi angles (for example 0, 45, and 90°) to determine the full stress/strain tensor. The value, σ11, will influence the overall slope of the data, while τ13 is related to the direction and degree of elliptical opening. Fig. 4 shows a simulated d versus sin2ψ profile for the tensor shown. Here the positive 20-MPa τ13 stress results in an elliptical opening in which the positive psi range opens upward and the negative psi range opens downward. A higher τ13 value will cause a larger elliptical opening. A negative 20-MPa τ13 stress would result in the same elliptical opening only the direction would be reversed with the positive psi range opening downwards and the negative psi range opening upwards as shown in Fig. 5.

    5.4 Modified Chi Mode—Interplanar strain measurements are performed at multiple β angles with a fixed χ offset, χm (Fig. 6). Measurements at various β angles do not provide a constant φ angle (Fig. 7), therefore, Eq 2 cannot be simplified in the same manner as for omega and chi mode.

    5.4.1 Eq 2 shall be rewritten in terms of β and χm. Eq 5 and 6 are obtained from the solution for a right-angled spherical triangle (3).

    Equation E2860-20_8

    Equation E2860-20_9

    5.4.2 Substituting φ and ψ in Eq 2 with Eq 5 and 6 (see X1.1), we get:

    Equation E2860-20_10

    5.4.3 Stress normal to the surface (σ33) is assumed to be insignificant because of the shallow depth of penetration of X-rays at the free surface reducing Eq 7 to Eq 8. Post-measurement corrections may be applied to account for possible σ33 influences (see 12.12). Since the σij values and χm will remain constant for a given azimuth, the s1{hkl} term is renamed C, and the σ22 term is renamed D.

    Equation E2860-20_11

    5.4.4 The σ11 influence on the d versus sin2β plot is similar to omega and chi mode (Fig. 8) with the exception that the slope shall be divided by cos2χm. This increases the effective 1/2 s2{hkl} by a factor of 1/cos2χm for σ11.

    FIG. 8 Sample d (2θ) Versus sin2β Dataset with σ11 = -500 MPa

    Sample (2θ) Versus sinβ Dataset with σ = -500 MPaSample (2θ) Versus sinβ Dataset with σ = -500 MPa

    5.4.5 The τij influences on the d versus sin2β plot are more complex and are often assumed to be zero (3). However, this may not be true and significant errors in the calculated stress may result. Figs. 9-13 show the d versus sin2β influences of individual shear components for modified chi mode considering two detector positions (χm = +12° and χm = -12°). Components τ12 and τ13 cause a symmetrical opening about the σ11 slope influence for either detector position (Figs. 9-11); therefore, σ11 can still be determined by simply averaging the positive and negative β data. Fitting the opening to the τ12 and τ13 terms may be possible, although distinguishing between the two influences through regression is not normally possible.

    FIG. 12 Sample d (2θ) Versus sin2β Dataset with χm = +12°, σ11 = -500 MPa, τ23 = -100 MPa, and Measured σ11 = -472.5 MPa

    Sample (2θ) Versus sinβ Dataset with χ = +12°, σ = -500 MPa, τ = -100 MPa, and Measured σ = -472.5 MPaSample (2θ) Versus sinβ Dataset with χ = +12°, σ = -500 MPa, τ = -100 MPa, and Measured σ = -472.5 MPa

    FIG. 13 Sample d (2θ) Versus sin2β Dataset with χm = -12°, σ11 = -500 MPa, τ23 = -100 MPa, and Measured σ11 = -527.5 MPa

    Sample (2θ) Versus sinβ Dataset with χ = -12°, σ = -500 MPa, τ = -100 MPa, and Measured σ = -527.5 MPaSample (2θ) Versus sinβ Dataset with χ = -12°, σ = -500 MPa, τ = -100 MPa, and Measured σ = -527.5 MPa

    5.4.6 The τ23 value affects the d versus sin2β slope in a similar fashion to σ11 for each detector position (Figs. 12 and 13). This is an unwanted effect since the σ11 and τ23 influence cannot be resolved for one χm position. In this instance, the τ23 shear stress of -100 MPa results in a calculated σ11 value of -472.5 MPa for χm = +12° or -527.5 MPa for χm = -12°, while the actual value is -500 MPa. The value, σ11 can still be determined by averaging the β data for both χm positions.

    5.4.7 The use of the modified chi mode may be used to determine σ11 but shall be approached with caution using one χm position because of the possible presence of a τ23 stress. The combination of multiple shear stresses including τ23 results in increasingly complex shear influences. Chi and omega mode are preferred over modified chi for these reasons.
