Variations in the halfwidth values of X-ray reflections from fatigue-cycled, polycrystalline aluminium samples have been analysed. An oscillatory variation of the halfwidths with fatigue cycling has been observed. Analysis of the diffraction line profiles indicates that broadening arises mainly because of the build-up of microstrains during fatigue cycling. The present data indicate that (i) broadening due to fatigue cycling increases with glancing angle; (ii) changes in halfwidth and integral widths, due to fatigue cycling, are comparable and (iii) (

Axially compressed Kevlar 49 fibres have been examined by X-ray diffraction methods. The most prominent effect of axial compression is the anisotropic deformation of the unit cell. Whereas the

Thermally aged Nomex fibres manifest several residual effects viz. reduction in X-ray crystallinity, weight loss and deterioration in tensile characteristics. Surface damages in the form of longitudinal openings, holes, material deposits etc have also been observed. Based on the data from thermally exposed fibres, the time needed for states of zero tensile strength and modulus have been predicted.

The occurrence of space group forbidden reflections in the X-ray diffraction patterns from the aramid PPTA has been correlated with the presence of stacking faults. The fraction of sample affected by the presence of such faults has also been estimated.
