It is well known that residual stress is one of the important problems in welding design/fabrications and sound maintenance of welded structures. Thus, the demand for quantitative evaluation of welding residual stress has been increased. However, conventional non-destructive techniques for welding residual stress measurement have many difficulties in in-field applications according to poor repeatability, large scatter of obtained data, complex procedures, inaccurate results, and etc. To overcome these difficulties, a newly developed indentation technique was proposed in this study, and applied to evaluate the welding residual stress in electric power plant facilities. By comparing with the stress values obtained from the destructive saw-cutting test, it could be concluded that the new indentation technique is very useful for quantitative/non-destructive evaluation of welding residual stresses in industrial fields such as power plant facilities.
