Scientists use Neutrons to Discover Strengthening Behavior in Alloys

A team of ORNL researchers used neutron diffraction experiments to study the 3D-printed ACMZ alloy and observed a phenomenon called “load shuffling” that could inform the design of stronger, better-performing lightweight materials for vehicles. Credit: ORNL, U.S. Dept. of Energy

Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Oak Ridge, Tennessee, have identified “load shuffling,” a mechanism in a 3D-printed alloy, that could enable the design of enhanced performance lightweight materials for vehicles.
