Mechanical constitutive models of metals undergoing deformation in three dimensions can be challenging to validate without loss of generality. For example, creep-induced stress relaxation in stainless steels has previously been studied using axisymmetric notched-bar tests which control the triaxiality of the initial stress state. However, such expe…

Eurofer 97 is the main structural material targeted for the DEMO reactors which will be operated under magnetic fields. It is therefore imperative to understand the effect of magnetic fields on the mechanical properties of the Eurofer 97. Here we preform 30 uniaxial tensile tests with and without a 1.5 T magnetic field at room temperature. The stat…

The deformation responses at 77 and 293 K of a FeCoNiCr high-entropy alloy, produced by a powder metallurgy route, are investigated using in situ neutron diffraction and correlative transmission electron microscopy. The strength and ductility of the alloy are significant improved at cryogenic temperatures. The true ultimate tensile strengt…

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…
