Abstract

WHEN metal parts are exposed to alterations of temperature, their outer dimensions undergo a change. With rising temperatures metals expand, with falling temperatures they contract. If different temperatures exist within one and the same metal member, internal stresses begin to act, causing a deformation of the component and thus setting up internal strains. Cracks, buckling, distortion and shrinkage are the external results of such strains.
