Figure 6: Texture evolution of α-phase (left column) and β-phase (right column) of Zr-2.5Nb at room temperature (a), 250°C (b), 975°C (c), after compression to 20% strain (d), cooling to 250°C (e), and again at room temperature (f) [79]. Allowing to measure the texture in situ at various temperatures and before and after the deformation in the β field uniquely allows to deconvolute the influences of temperature changes and deformation on the texture. Without this capability, only the two room temperature textures would be available.
