The Scope of the Symposium

The vision behind the proposal for construction of the Beamline for European Material Engineering Research /BEER/ at ESS is to extend the current scope of engineering diffraction research from conventional strain scanning, texture and in-situ deformation studies towards the broader material engineering and metallurgy areas by:

  1. developing new strategies for time-resolved in-situ processing studies - in-situ neutron investigations of engineering materials under extreme thermomechanical loading conditions used in production, processing and/or testing,
  2. introducing innovative in-situ neutron studies during long time testing of engineering materials and in-operandi studies using user-defined sample environments.

The ESS Science symposium will focus on:

  1. Material processing experiments on neutron/high energy X-ray engineering diffractometers
  2. Methods for reconstruction of microstructure information from neutron/X-ray data
  3. Material testing experiments on neutron/high energy X-ray engineering diffractometers
  4. In-operandi experiments on neutron/high energy X-ray engineering diffractometers
  5. Modelling of the evolution of microstructure during processing/testing of engineering materials
