This paper describes the results of a programme of experimental neutron diffraction residual stress studies. The aim of the programme was to characterize the residual stress distribution which may arise in a component due to electron beam welding. The programme comprises of three studies, one on a complete weld test-block and one on each of two cut sections. The studies confirm that major non-uniform stresses may be present in such weldments. © 1995.
