The Measurement of Residual Stress using Laboratory Based X-Ray Diffraction Instruments; the Positives, the Pitfalls and a Round Robin
Workshop and Exhibition
Location: National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, UK
Price: Prices inc VAT. BSSM Members including students £70 . Special offer join the BSSM today and attend at the member rate £140. Non Member £95.
A one day workshop which will include the following topics:.
- The basic principles of crystallography and of the laboratory based X-ray diffraction (XRD) method
- Advantages and limitations of the method
- Measurement of awkward samples including curved, large ones and anisotropic materials
- Elastic constants, after all, we measure strain, not stress
- Methods layer removal which do not introduce additional stresses
There will be an instrument Manufacturer's forum and live demonstrations
A programme of Round Robin XRD residual stress measurements will be discussed at the meeting.
This event will be a one day workshop which will include a wide range of topics including, the basic principles of crystallography and of the laboratory based X-ray diffraction (XRD) method; it’s advantages and limitations. The measurement of awkward samples including curved ones, large ones and anisotropic materials should be covered. We will also discuss elastic constants given that we measure strain, not stress as well as methods layer removal.
The results from the recent EASI-STRESSers Round Robin will be described as well as a comparison with hole drilling techniques.
There will be an instrument manufacturer's forum, (hopefully!!!) with live demonstrations of portable residual stress diffractometers.
We also intend to initiate a Round Robin to test the reproducibility XRD method with as wide a range of instruments and participants as possible.
