The evolution of elastic lattice strain in a Ti-48A1-2W (at. %) alloy, subjected to (1) quasistatic tensile loading and (2) constant-load tensile creep, was investigated at 1033 K using in situ neutron diffraction. During the quasistatic test to a maximum stress of 435 MPa, a- and c-axes lattice strains increased linearly with a small degree of anisotropy (Ēa/Ēc≅0.9) up to 200 MPa, followed by a significant redistribution of load above 260 MPa due to the plastic anisotropy. Time-resolved in situ measurements were also performed during the creep at 276 and 327 MPa. The results show that lattice strain evolution during the primary creep is qualitatively similar to the quasistatic case under the current test conditions.

    Analysis of bulk aluminum A-1050 has been performed using FCD/TD-BATAN. From neutron diffraction pattern of bulk sample, two Bragg peaks, (220) and (200) are observed while three Bragg peaks of (111), (311) and (222) are over dumped. Due to preferred orientation, crystallites are highly oriented...

    The traditional contour method maps a single component of residual stress by cutting a body carefully in two and measuring the contour of the cut surface. The cut also exposes previously inaccessible regions of the body to residual stress measurement using a variety of other techniques, but the...

    Two neutron based techniques, neutron resonance capture analysis (NRCA) and time-of-flight neutron-diffraction (TOF-ND) have been used to determine the elemental composition and structure of a precious and very well preserved all-metal sword from the Bronze Age. This Buggenum sword was on loan...

    Oxygen defect clustering in uranium dioxide had been indicated in powder neutron diffraction measurements, and an empirical clustering mechanism had been proposed to explain the data. However, using first-principles LSDA+U calculations, we find that this empirical model, in fact, cannot work. A...

    We provide a quantum approach description of neutron single and double-slit diffraction, with specific attention to the cold neutron diffraction ( λ≈20 Å) carried out by Zeilinger et al. (Rev. Mod. Phys. 60:1067, ). We find the theoretical results are good agreement with...

    Neutron diffraction measurements have been performed on polycrystalline Fe1-xO (wüstite) up to 20.3 GPa using a large-volume moissanite anvil cell at room temperature to examine the existence of long-range magnetic ordering in the high-pressure rhombohedral phase of the material. This...
