The ENGIN-X beamline is mainly used to determine residual strains/stresses deep within the interior of bulk engineering components. It is mainly used by scientists and engineers for the development of modern engineering processes and structural integrity investigations. ENGIN-X diffraction and transmission mode can be a very useful tool to measure strain, phase transitions, texture and material composition in spatial resolution in historical or archaeological artifacts and modern materials. The complexity of the shapes and sizes of the samples measured on ENGIN-X varies significantly between experiments, and this required the development of better planning, simulation and control software, SScanSS. In this paper an overview of recent developments in strain scanning on ENGIN-X and a highlight of current scientific research are presented.
