Influences on Residual Stress Distortion of Components during Milling

What are the main influences on residual stress distortion of components during milling?


Challenge and Motivation

  • Residual stress distortion is still a common problem in milling of aerospace components that can cause high costs. 
  • The dominant influencing factors are still unknown, making a systematic approach to the problem difficult.


  • Identification and analysis of dominant influencing factors for residual stress distortion. 
  • Derivation of recommendations for low distortion milling.
