This paper presents the literature review on determination of welding residual stresses in weldments. In this paper, a detailed study on residual stress and the different methods to determine the residual stresses is carried out. There are different cases dealt in this study. The specimen is mainly steel pipe. It is cut into two and the ends are grooved with an opening angle of 45℃ and the ends are welded together. This is the region where the residual stresses will be induced and the different

The main objective of this review is to describe about the several types of methods to determine the residual stresses in steel pipes and to find a suitable method to determine the residual stress in low carbon steel pipes which are welded using MIG welding.
