Geometry of Texture Measurements for Dispersive Methods

Received30 Jul 1980


The application of energy-dispersive neutron and X-ray methods in texture studies is briefly reviewed and discussed. New geometries of texture measurement using energy-dispersive methods with stationary counters and specimen are suggested. Depending on the number of counters the experimental data can be sufficient for the orientation distribution function (ODF) or the ideal orientations determination. Coarse-grained materials can be studied not only by neutron diffraction but also by using the energy-dispersive X-ray method. Studies of texture changes under the influence of temperature, time and external stresses can also be conducted conveniently. The energy-dispersive X-ray method may readily be adapted to industrial texture control.
