Title ENGIN-X: neutron strain scanner for materials structure and stress analysis
Abstract Pulsed neutron beams available at the ISIS spallation source offer diverse possibilities for materials characterization using diffraction and imaging. ENGIN-X beamline at ISIS is very popular and used extensively by both engineers and materials scientists. Measurements are carried out in collaborative experiments between universities, industry and ISIS to address a wide range of engineering problems: new welding technologies for airframe manufacturing, fatigue crack initiation and propagation in composite materials, thermal cycling of materials used in the power generation industry, etc. Internal and residual stresses in materials have a considerable effect on material properties, including fatigue resistance, fracture toughness and strength. In this paper a range of applications will be reviewed in the context of using ENGIN-X beamline for the characterization of phase transformations and residual stress states in engineering components made from steel, in particular for the development of modern engineering processes and structural integrity investigations.
