Dynamic Texture Measurement Facility

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage Infrastructure Equipment & Facilities (LIEF)

Abstract


  • A texture goniometer provides comprehensive crystallographic and residual stress information assisting in understanding the effects of preferred grains orientations on mechanical and physical properties of materials. This will be the first facility of its kind in Australia dedicated to assessing the "dynamic" changes in crystal structure encountered when the temperature is raised and when stress is applied. Researchers at UOW and Deakin University currently lack this equipment to support a wide range of internationally competitive materials research. This application aims to correct this deficiency.
