The NeT international network has undertaken a number of round robin studies examining the prediction and measurement of weld residual stresses. NeT TG4 examined the case of a three-pass slot weld made from AISI 316L steel. The project started in 2007, and is now close to completion. This paper reviews the project as a whole, and presents its achievements.
