Strain analyser for engineering applications
SALSA is the ILL stress imager dedicated to the determination of residual stresses in a broad range of applications in terms of components and materials. It is designed for diffraction measurements in "real" engineering components and optimised for stress determination in metallic components.
The Hexapod, i.e. the sample manipulator.
It consists of a 6 legs hydraulic system, like those for flight simulators.
