The study of nanomaterials is an active area of 21st-century research in physics, chemistry and materials engineering as well as biomedical engineering. Nanomaterials which are defined as substances that are in the form of spherical dot, rod, thin plate or voids of any irregular shape, but smaller than 100nm, find wide application in materials science and technology due to their very distinctive properties as compared with their bulk counterpart.

Neutron and synchrotron radiation are novel and powerful tools for stress evaluation, and are widely applied to fundamental studies in materials science and engineering, and in various industrial fields. This volume brings together the up-to-date knowledge of scientists from the academic world and industry in order to address specific topics concerning the evaluation of stresses and related phenomena using neutrons, synchrotron radiation and X-rays. Many of the presentations on stress-testing deal with samples of up to 0.5m line-pipe. Many applications of micro-beam X-ray methods are described, ranging from intragranular stress fluctuations within a grain (attributed to dislocations) to stresses in interconnects on chips. Simultaneous evaluation of tomographic and stress measurements of the same sample was shown to provide extremely clear insights into the nature and cause of damage. A major advance in the simulation of stress and strain at the mesoscopic scale has been achieved using the extended elasto-plastic self-consistent model. Such discoveries, and many others, will make this an important reference work for anyone who uses these techniques.
