Today components specially for passenger cars are weight optimized. Often it is done by mechanical surface treatments. Therefore, the amount of compressive residual stress induced by the treatment must be known. The measurement is very often done by x-ray diffraction. But how precise can you determine (and not directly measured) the amount? A big question is the calibration of the equipment. A specimen must be designed and calibrated by round robin test, because no measurement standard is available.
