    The residual stress plays a key role in determining the life and dimensional stability of a precision machine component. This article reviews the various factors leading to the formation of residual stresses and describes the x-ray diffraction technique for the measurement of residual stresses . Emphasis is given to the recent developments which permit the estimation of (a) triaxial stresses, (b) stresses in the various phases of a multiphase material such as ceramic composites, and (c) the stresses in composites containing non-crystalline or poorly crystalline materials such as polymer matrix composites . Some examples are given from the work carried out at the National Aerospace Laboratories
