Abstract. The surface integrity has a significant effect on the fatigue life of structural components (e.g., landing gears). To estimate sub-surface residual stresses, X-ray diffraction (XRD) is applied to a Ti5553 alloy sample in an in-situ tensile test. This material is challenging since it is made of α and β phases of different proportions, shapes and scales ranging from submicrometre to millimetre sizes. Therefore stress variations occur between grains. For millimetric probed volumes, the studied microstructure leads to shallow and noisy diffraction signals. It is shown that combing a new integrated method of diffraction peak registration and in-situ XRD measurements in tensile tests allows qualitative and quantitative results of residual stress analyses to be obtained for Ti5553 alloy samples.
