What is the procedure for solving residual stress in a microstructure?

I am trying to do residual stress measurement for a microstructure using OOF. Many research papers suggest plane stress condition and some other details. I am not able to solve that way. If someone knows, suggest the method to solve it.

    Residual stresses have different origins: thermal stresses, epitaxial stresses, even piezoelectric stresses are possible and can be incorporated into OOF. Could you be more explicit on what you are intending to solve?

      Updating this topic, about thermal stresses, induced during heat treatments.

      What kind of fields/equations should be used? I'm having some difficulties to understand what is the meaning of "active" and "in-plane" options, because I understand that should use "temperature" and "displacment" fields.

      Also, do you have any suggestion about the type of solver to be selected?
