  2. A High Flux Neutron Generator for Measuring Bulk Residual Stress via Diffraction

    SBC: Phoenix LLC            Topic: AF131119

    ABSTRACT: Residual stresses can be created in engineered components by most common fabrication processes (e.g., welding, joining, machining, casting, heat treating, press fitting, etc.). They are of particular concern to the aerospace industry because they are difficult to measure and can lead to premature failure of flight-critical components. There are several established methodologies for ch ...
