AAE 552 Spring 2009 – A. F. Grandt 2 7 X-Ray Diffraction Incident/scattered x-rays constructively interfere under certain conditions Determine lattice spacing Identify materials, residual stress, etc. θ Incident X-rays Scattered X-rays d 8 Bragg’s Law Ray B travels distance XYZ farther than A XY = YZ = d sin θ Bragg’s law describes constructive interference when η λ = 2 d sin θ η = order of refraction, λ = wave length d = atomic spacing, θ = diffracted angle X Y Z A B θ d 9 Bragg’s Law Use known wavelength, angle of incidence, to find lattice spacing Energy Wave length λ λ min or E max Intensity of x-ray Characteristic x-rays 10 Radiation Safety Radiographic NDE requires strict safety considerations 11 Radiography Safety Issues X-rays and gamma rays are dangerous and require special precautions Protect personnel Monitor radiation dosage Safety principles based on Distance – keep people away Absorption – shield radiation Time – plan minimum time of human exposure to radiation Safety important – but Adequate precautions are possible NDE can be conducted safely 12 Summary Radiography - Pros Detect internal and external damage Applicable to a wide variety of solid materials Can examine complex shapes and wide range of thickness Permanent record of inspection obtained Minimal part preparation Real time viewing possible Three-dimensional imaging possible with Computerized Tomography (CT)
