Internal-strain profiles in friction-stir processed aluminum-alloy plates were investigated using neutron diffraction. Three different specimens were prepared with a purpose of separating the effects of frictional heating and severe plastic deformation on the internal-strain distribution: (Case 1) a plate processed with both stirring pin and tool shoulder, (Case 2) a plate processed only with the tool shoulder, and (Case 3) a plate processed only with the pin. The comparison between Cases 1 and 2 shows distinctly different strain profiles revealing deconvoluted effects of the different sources (i.e., heat, deformation, or the combination) on the internal strains generated during the friction-stir processing.

    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...
