Special Issue "Analysis of Strain, Stress and Texture with Quantum Beams"
A special issue of Quantum Beam Science (ISSN 2412-382X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2021).
Interests: fatigue; fracture mechanics; fractography; NDE; residual stress
Internal and residual stresses in materials have a considerable effect on material properties, including fatigue resistance, stress corrosion cracking, fracture toughness, and strength. Residual stresses are analyzed using FEM and measured using quantum beams, such as X-ray, synchrotron radiation, and neutron. In some cases, residual stresses are evaluated by the combination of FEM analysis and quantum methods. Since the penetration depth of neutron is very deep, the residual stresses inside of the structural component can be measured. Pulsed neutron beam experimental facilities have been constructed in the world. Thus, residual stresses have recently been measured using the pulsed neutron beam. However, it is necessary to prepare strain-free samples for the evaluation of residual stresses using the neutron. The most appropriate method has not been established yet. On the other hand, there is the diffraction plane dependence of elastic constants. The evaluation of residual stresses in heavily textured materials has to consider anisotropy. At the same time, it is necessary to develop measurement technology for texture. In this issue titled “Analysis of Strain, Stress and Texture with Quantum Beams”, many topics related the residual stress assessment will be discussed.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Quantum Beam Science is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
