A new type of specimen configuration with the purpose of introducing a well-defined biaxial residual (axisymmetric)
stress field in a neat thermoset or a fibre composite material is presented. The ability to experimentally validate residual
stress predictions is an increasing need for design engineers when they challenge the material limits in present and future
thermoset and composite component. In addition to the new specimen configuration, this paper presents an analytical
solution for the residual stress state in the specimen. The analytical solution assumes linear elastic and isotropic material
behaviour. Experimental strain release measurements and the analytical solution determine the residual stress state
present in the material. A demonstration on neat epoxy is conducted and residual stress predictions of high accuracy and
repeatability have been achieved. The precise determination of the biaxial stress state in the specimen after cure makes it
suitable for calibrating residual stress models.
