In this article we describe the parts of measuring string used for residual stress calculations by Ring-Core method. Correct design and usage of the measuring chain is very important for successful measurement and the accurate data acquisition. Therefore it is sufficient to pay adequate attention to this problem before the experimental testing itself.
