Materials microstructures and Damage in 3D using Synchrotron X-rays

Speakers: Professor James Marrow, James Martin 21st Century School Professor in Energy Materials, Department of Materials, Oxford University

Experimental observations are essential for the validation for models for crack growth behaviour, particularly in the short crack regime where cracks have a similar length scale as the microstructure. This talk describes the use of new methods for 3D characterisation of microstructures and degradation of materials, which have been applied particularly to study short crack development, in-situ. This includes stress corrosion cracking of stainless steels, fatigue of Magnesium, and the brittle fracture of ceramics and nuclear graphite.
