Small Angle Neutron Scattering from CuCrZr coupons and components

Small Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS) is performed to analyse the microstructural state of reference CuCrZr material with carefully controlled heat treatments, small-scale manufacturing mock-ups of assemblies and high-heat-flux exposed mock-ups. The information derived from the SANS data corresponds well to existing literature data based on microscopic scale techniques. The manufacturing method as well as high-heat-flux testing conditions are confirmed to have little impact on the microstructural properties. The work also demonstrates that SANS can be used for millimetre-scale analysis of small engineering components with minimal surface preparation.
