Engin-X is a leading neutron diffractometer for materials science and engineering, with high resolution and versatile capabilities at the ISIS spallation source, UK. Over the past 10 years Engin-X has continually redefined the frontier of stress characterisation capability through investment in state-of-the-art equipment, attracting academic and industrial users from 24 countries. Measurements are typically carried out in collaborative experiments between universities, industry and ISIS to address a wide range of engineering problems: manufacturing challenges surrounding magnesium alloys for the automotive industry, creep deformation of nickel-base superalloys for aero engines, structural integrity of welds for nuclear power plants, residual stresses in a range of samples from complex aerospace components to ancient steel making manufacturing techniques.
