9th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON
MECHANICAL STRESS EVALUATION BY NEUTRON and SYNCHROTRON RADIATION
Skukuza Rest Camp, Kruger National Park, South Africa
19 to 21 September 2017
“Stress School” on 18 September and
SAFARI-1 research reactor visit on 22 September 2017
The 9th International Conference on Mechanical Stress Evaluation by Neutron and Synchrotron Radiation, MECA SENS 2017, invites the participation of researchers active in the field of neutron, synchrotron and X-ray strain scanning studies of materials. MECA SENS 2017 is being organised in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency and is hosted by the South African Nuclear Energy Corporation (Necsa) SOC.
A "Stress School" for participants new to the field as well as a visit to the SAFARI-1 research reactor is being planned.
The conference offers a unique opportunity to overview the most recent developments and capabilities of the diffraction based approaches, complemented by mechanical and image-based techniques. Equal emphasis will be given to measurement, modelling and application of residual stress data.
We invite the participation of scientists and engineers from academia, research facilities and industry spanning the scope from well experienced practitioners, instrumentation experts and innovators continuously pushing the envelope of the techniques and applications, to postgraduate students and researchers new to this exciting field.
Manuscripts will be peer-reviewed and published in a topical international journal.
