Abstract

In this study the effect of torsional vibration on residual stresses was investigated. Three types of shaft specimen were processed, namely (a) a homogeneous shaft, (b) a shaft welded on a circumferential line and (c) a spot-welded shaft. The first two types of shaft showed some redistribution in the residual stresses under applied torsional loads. On the spot-welded shafts the residual stresses were found to decrease significantly at a very low level of vibration induced stress.
