The production of precision parts requires manufacturing processes which produce low residual stresses. This study was designed to investigate the parametric relationship between machining processes and residual stress distribution. Sets of steel specimens were single point turned at different feeds. The residual stress profiles of these specimens were monitored, using a continuous etching technique. A “Specific Instability Potential” parameter, derived from the strain energy of the residual stresses, was found to relate directly to the machining parameters. It is suggested that the Specific Instability Potential can be used as a parameter for specifying processing operations.
