Residual Stress Characterization

residual stressWithin our software, Third Wave Systems has the unique ability to measure bulk residual stresses in initial workpiece materials, for a more accurate prediction of behavior during machining.  Successfully proven in aerospace and military applications, experimental stress data loads directly into TWS' software for future analysis and reduction of part distortion.

Companies wishing to model materials not currently in TWS' material model database may request a residual stress characterization service from Third Wave Systems. TWS welcomes the opportunity to model these new materials - both for customers requesting confidential results and for those open to incorporating the final data into future software releases.
