Thermoplastic polymer mouldings and thermoset mouldings often contain residual stresses which can cause distortion and may influence the fracture behaviour. This guide describes approaches to measurement of residual stress using layer removal, hole-drilling and chemical probe techniques. It will be of particular value to polymer processors, designers and materials testers.
