Abstract. The standard strain gage hole drilling method for residual stress determination assumes a linear elastic behavior of the material. However, if the stress level is high, plastic deformation may occur near the drilled hole, resulting in significant errors in the calculation of residual stress. The application of optical whole-field interferometry methods like speckle-interferometry (ESPI) for determining residual stresses allows to gather more information about the stress state of an object compared to the data from resistance strain gauges. Such advantage is achieved by calculating a significantly larger amount of displacement values induced by the hole-drilling. The ESPI-HD method additionally enables automated data analysis and selection of predefined areas with displacements in the vicinity of the drilled hole to determine the plasticity effect without the need of the material’s yield stress. In the present work, an approach is described to determine the plasticity effect without using the yield stress. The approach is based on the fact that plastic deformation in the vicinity of the hole is not uniform. Analysis of stress variation at different sectors near the hole allows retrieving the real stress state. The developed method can significantly reduce errors in the determination of high residual stresses. The influence of materials properties, such as Young and plastic tangent moduli, Poisson ratio and yield stress, on the results obtained by the proposed procedure for plasticity error correction is investigated.
