A comparative study to map the residual strain/stress states through the walls of autofrettaged thick-walled high-strength steel cylinders has been conducted with neutron diffraction, Sachs boring, and the compliance methods. Test samples with different wall thickness ratios were prepared to have significant amounts of reverse yielding due to the Bauschinger effect. In an effort to explain observed differences in the hoop stress results, the crack compliance experiment was simulated with finite elements. Several residual stress fields were introduced in the finite element models. A theoretical finite element (FE) model, which is capable of accurately modeling the highly nonlinear reverse yielding of the material, was able to accurately predict the crack compliance strain measurements.
