Abstract

A MODIFIED STRESS FUNCTION APPROACH IS DEVELOPED HERE TO RECON-STRUCT INDUCED STRESS, RESIDUAL STRESS AND EIGENSTRAIN FIELDS FROM LIMITED EXPERIMENTAL MEASUREMENTS. THE PRESENT APPROACH IS SUCCESSFULLY APPLIED TO THREE EXPERIMENTAL MEASUREMENTS SET IN SURFACE PEENED PLATES WITH SHALLOW SHOT PEENING AFFECTED ZONE. THE WELL-REHEARSED ADVANTAGE OF THE PROPOSED APPROACH IS THAT IT NOT ONLY MINIMIZES THE DEVIATION OF MEASUREMENTS FROM ITS APPROXIMATIONS BUT ALSO WILL RESULT IN AN INVERSE SOLUTION SATISFYING A FULL RANGE OF CONTINUUM MECHANICS REQUIREMENTS. ALSO, THE EFFECT OF COMPONENT THICKNESS AS A GEOMETRIC PARAMETER INFLUENCING THE RESIDUAL STRESS STATE IS COMPREHENSIVELY STUDIED. A KEY FINDING OF PRESENT STUDY IS THAT THE PLATE THICKNESS HAS NO INFLUENCE ON THE MAGNITUDE OF EIGENSTRAIN PROFILE WITHIN THE SHOT PEENING AFFECTED ZONE WHILE HAVING A GREAT INFLUENCE ON THE MAGNITUDE AND GRADIENT OF LINEAR RESIDUAL STRESSES PRESENT IN DEEPER REGIONS.
