A new generation of synchrotron-based characterization tools for structural (load bearing) materials are currently being developed around the world. The attributes of synchrotron x-rays (high flux, small beam size, high energy, etc.) are being widely exploited to change the very nature of engineering material characterization experiments including the way experimental data are being utilized within material performance models. This workshop will have presentations focused on methods, including high-energy diffraction microscopy, polychromatic microbeam scans, tomography, and combinations of techniques; on applications, including non-destructive grain map reconstruction, in situ environments (loading, temperature, irradiation, etc.) to study material evolution, and residual stress measurements; on modeling, including virtual sample construction, elastic-plastic deformation, phase transformations, forward projections; and on facilities at APS sector 1, CHESS, ESRF, and Petra-III.
