Low frequency resonant vibrational excitation was investigated as a means of residual stress relief. Experimentation indicated stress relief occurred in those sections of the beams where the material was forced to exceed its yield point and platically deform, thus substantiating the fact that vibrational excitation has the potential of being a stress relieving mechanism.
