This publication is the result of an IAEA coordinated research project and presents a survey of the basic principles, requirements, preparation, design, execution and standardization of residual stress measurements using neutron beams. It includes details of experimental techniques, associated equipment and instrumentation, their commissioning and calibration, control and data acquisition. A separate chapter is dedicated to data analysis and interpretation. Finally, the document provides, with a number of selected examples, applications of residual stress measurements as well as future trends for development and use of this powerful technique. The publication is a comprehensive and useful resource to the neutron beam user community including academia and industrial partners. It may serve as an introduction to the field for young researchers and graduate students as well as guidelines to those operating or planning to implement/modernise their facilities for residual stress measurements. Ultimately, the publication presents neutron beams as a valuable and effective tool for performing residual stress measurements both for basic research and various applications.
