Based on the Berg-Barrett method, Scanning Energy Dispersive X-ray Diffraction Microscopy (SEDXDM) has been developed for nondestructively evaluating both the surface and subsurface of poly-crystallized materials. The SEDXDM includes an X-ray source generating continuous X-ray spectrum as a key component to form a highly resolved 2-D horizontal cross-sectional digital image. This article presents the evaluation of the fatigue damage (e.g., slip line and slip band caused by fatigue deformation) of the coarse-grained aluminum, which is made by means of annealing and has been repeatedly bent to generate the stress and make the slope of the stress created in the thickness direction of the plate specimen, under fully reversed anti-plane bending condition with the SEDXDM.
