Abstract:

A study was carried out at the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment AWRE, Aldermaston, England, on the use of small-angle neutron scattering SANS for non-destructive evaluation of alloys of technological importance. A range of ferrous and nickel-based superalloys were examined in different conditions. SANS is sensitive to the development of heterogeneities having sufficient scattering power for neutrons. It is concluded that this method can play an important role in alloy development and long range alloy test programs. Author
