An approach based on linear elastic equations is developed to predict axisymmetric axial and radial residual stresses in a long cylinder in plane strain from hoop stresses measured in both plane strain and plane stress. This approach, when combined with the authors’ crack compliance method for residual stress measurement, leads to a simplified experimental procedure for measurement of axisymmetric residual stresses in cylinders.
