A key issue in the design of advanced materials is the control of residual stresses induced near material interfaces due to the mismatch in the thermo-mechanical properties of the composite constituents. Over the last ten years the neutron scattering technique has been recognised as a powerful tool in the characterisation of advanced materials due to its potential to reveal stress distribution deep within material specimens. In this paper the feasibility of the technique in connection with the Petten High Flux Reactor faciltiies is established, and experimental data for residual stress fields near material interfaces of advanced composites are presented.
