The ASTM E837 standard is the only complete standard on residual stress measurements available worldwide. This standard describes a genuine test method for determining stresses using the hole-drilling strain-gauge method.
At the end of 2013, an important review introduced several changes and upgrades to this ASTM standard. The MTS3000 is the automatic instrument for measuring residual stresses using the hole-drilling strain-gauge method. EVAL is analysis software for use with this system and allows to calculate the residual stresses from the strains measured with an HBM strain gauge amplifier (QuantumX, espressoDAQ or MGCplus). EVAL software has recently been upgraded with several additional features, also including calculation in accordance with the new version of the ASTM E837 standard.
