Micro-Measurements RS-200 and Strain Measurement for Determining Residual Stress
The ASTM E837 hole drilling method is a widely used and accepted technique for determining residual stresses. Micro-Measurements manufactures and sells the RS-200 Milling Guide to support the hole drilling method of measuring strain for the calculation of residual stress.
In this video, Darryl Peterson describes the RS-200 Milling Guide.
The datasheet for the RS-200 can be found at this link:
Strain gage rosettes specifically designed for use with the hole drilling method of residual stress may be found at this link:
Micro-Measurements also has published a Tech Note (TN-503) with full information on how to use the hole drilling method of residual stress analysis:
