Laser surface-contouring and spline data-smoothing for residual stress measurement
We describe non-contact scanning with a confocal laser probe to measure surface contours for application to residual stress measurement. (In the recently introduced contour method, a part is cut inExpand
Mode I fracture of epoxy bonded composite joints: 1. Quasi-static loading
Abstract Mode I constant displacement rate tests were conducted on epoxy-bonded CFRP joints at –50, 22 and 90°C. A comparison of experimental compliance and different beam theory approaches indicatedExpand
Engineering the residual stress state and microstructure of stainless steel with mechanical surface treatments
Four mechanical surface treatments have been considered for the application to austenitic stainless steel structures. Shot peening (SP), laser shock peening (LSP), ultrasonic impact treatment (UIT)Expand
Morphology and crystallization kinetics of polyethylene/long alkyl-chain substituted Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxanes (POSS) nanocomposite blends: A SAXS/WAXS study
The dispersal, quiescent crystallization kinetics and morphology of a series of unique polyethylene–polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (PE-POSS) nanocomposite blends is presented. POSS moleculesExpand
Residual stress in 7449 aluminium alloy forgings
The through thickness residual stress distributions within three 120 mm thick rectilinear forgings, made from the high strength aluminium alloy 7449 have been measured using both neutron diffractionExpand
Effect of processing parameters on the morphology development during extrusion of polyethylene tape : an in-line small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) study
The in-line development of crystalline morphology and orientation during melt extrusion of low density polyethylene (LDPE) tape at nil and low haul-off speeds has been investigated using Small-AngleExpand
Can intergranular force transmission be identified in sand?
This work tackles the challenge of assessment of force distributions in granular media. Spatially resolved neutron and x-ray diffraction are used to measure internal strains of sand grains underExpand
Effect of Temperature on the Quasi-static Strength and Fatigue Resistance of Bonded Composite Double Lap Joints
Abstract Fibre reinforced polymer composites (FRP's) are often used to reduce the weight of a structure. Traditionally the composite parts are bolted together; however, increased weight savings canExpand
Residual stresses and fatigue performance
Residual stresses are an inescapable consequence of manufacturing and fabrication processes, with magnitudes that are often a high proportion of the yield or proof strength. Despite this, theirExpand
High hydrostatic pressure equipment for neutron scattering studies of samples in solutions
The design of new high pressure equipment for structural and dynamical studies on samples in solution is described. We present two sample cells for applying pressures up to 150 and 700 MPa (i.e. 1.5Expand
