Study of mechanical behaviour of polycrystalline materials at the mesoscale using high energy X-ray diffraction

Owing to its selectivity, diffraction is a powerful tool for analysing the mechanical behaviour of polycrystalline materials at the mesoscale, i.e. phase and grain scale. “In situ” synchrotron diffraction (transmission mode) during tensile tests and modified self-consistent elastoplastic model were used to study elastic and plastic phenomena occurring in polycrystalline specimens during deformation. The evolution of stress for grains which belong to different phases of duplex stainless steel and pearlitic steel was analyzed.
