Microstructure of horseshoe nails using neutron diffraction

Goossens, Darren; Studer, Andrew J; Stachurski, Zbigniew


Neutron diffraction allows non-destructive testing of the bulk microstructure of mechanical components. The microstructures of horseshoe nails made through three different processes have been explored as a function of position along the nail. Despite all nails being made of similar plain low carbon steel and being process annealed after manufacture, the microstructures are far from the same. Nails made from strip, using a cold forging stamping process, show narrower diffraction peaks...[Show more]
