The knowledge of the distribution of residual stresses in milling planes is of paramount importance to understand the surface qualities of engineering components, research on manufacturing processes and improve the assembly qualities of machines. For this purpose, a prediction method for the residual stress fields was proposed. Residual stresses of some surface discrete points of a rectangular specimen were measured. Based on the measurements, the residual stress field was predicted by establishing bivariate mathematical models. The obtained results are close to the experimental technique and superior to the previous average method. The predicted stress fields are almost symmetrical along the length or width. The proposed method avoids simulating the process of residual stresses generation and has a unique potential application for engineering components of which the generation process of residual stresses can hardly be simulated in detail.
