Stress is developed during the synthesis and use of materials such as alloys and compounds. Measurement of residual stress is essential to improve the quality of synthesized materials and diagnosis of failure and/or reliability of fabricated components. Neutron scattering is a non-destructive technique and is useful for testing large samples. The method has applications in engineering industries, including the nuclear industry.
