Crystal plasticity finite element (CPFE) modelling is an effective tool from which detailed information on the meso-scale behaviour of crystalline metallic systems can be extracted and used, not only to enhance the understanding of material behaviour under different loading conditions, but also to improve the structural integrity assessment of e…

A long-term high-temperature testing stress rig has been designed and fabricated for performing in situ neutron diffraction tests at the ENGIN-X beamline, ISIS facility in the UK. It is capable of subjecting metals to high temperatures up to 800°C and uniaxial loading under different boundary conditions including constant load, constant s…

Elastic follow-up is a mechanical boundary condition lying between constant load and constant strain control. It exists in many engineering components operating at high temperature and can result in dramatically different creep stress relaxation and strain accumulation rates in a localized region of a component. We have performed creep tests under …
