Abstract

Neutron diffraction research has been limited to the "static" behavior of materials since the number of collected neutrons is insufficient to reach the adequate neutron counts in rapid changes of material state. In order to achieve the desired precision for the study of the transient material behavior, we propose an in-situ neutron-diffraction measurement method based on the quasi-steady state (QSS) phenomenon. The QSS principle was applied for the measurement of transient lattice spacing changes in a 6061-T6 aluminum alloy plate during thermo-mechanical processing.
