Paper Abstract

Neutron diffraction is becoming an increasingly important tool for the determination of triaxial residual stress distributions for materials science and engineering applications. Indeed, virtually all of the major neutron centers in the world have, or are planning, programs in this area. In this paper the basic principles of the technique will be described, along with advantages and limitations relative to other nondestructive residual stress measurement methods. Examples of the application of the technique to sub-surface residual stress determination in metals and composites will be presented, along with some near-surface results. The significant features of new neutron instruments for residual stress study will be summarized.
