MECA SENS 2017: 9th International Conference on Mechanical Stress Evaluation by Neutron and Synchrotron Radiation

Start Date 19th Sep 2017
End Date 21st Sep 2017

Both engineering and scientific aspects of residual stress are considered, including topics such as:

  • Stress evaluation using neutrons, synchrotron radiation and X-rays
  • Development of measurement methods and instrumentation
  • Material processing with relation to residual stresses
  • The influence of residual stresses on physical and mechanical properties of materials and components
  • Measurement and assessment of residual microstresses and intergranular stresses
  • Residual strains and stresses in complex materials, e.g. multiphase materials and biomaterials
  • Residual stresses in thin films and microcomponents
  • Industrial applications of residual stress analyses using neutrons, synchrotron radiation and X-rays
  • Complementary techniques for residual stress measurements, e.g. mechanical methods versus diffraction.
  • Others

Microsymposia during MECA SENS 8 covered the topics:

  • Techniques & Instruments
  • Surface Modification and Coating
  • Microstructure characterisation
  • Deformation & Modelling
  • Fatigue/Creep Plasticity
  • Processing & Welding
  • 3D/4D characterisation
  • Others
