A Neutron Is Capable of What You Earlier Believed

11 Aug 17

Scientists have found new capabilities of a neutron. A team from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory joined hand with industry partners to perform the test.

The scientists tried to discover whether a high-performance alloy that is promising for automotive applications held up under the heat and stress of an internal combustion engine. The scientists stated that the feat was a first for the Spallation Neutron Source. Additionally, this was the first time an internal combustion engine has been run on scientists’ diffractometer.

The scientists stated that the unique characteristics of neutrons allow them to penetrate materials in a nondestructive fashion. The scientists also revealed the fundamental details about a material's atomic structure. So if you are also thinking that why VULCAN is ideal for evaluating a cylinder head cast then let us tell you that VULCAN uses neutrons to measure strain and stress on large industrial samples. These properties make it appropriate for evaluating a cylinder head cast from an aluminum-cerium alloy ORNL developed in partnership with Eck Industries.
