Texture Analysis From Incomplete Pole Figures in Low Symmetry Cases
Received24 Nov 1986

From a classification of crystal symmetries involved in texture analysis we define a set of (low) crystal symmetries that can be similarly managed in the same computer program, using the harmonic method. A way of calculating the texture from incomplete pole figures is then proposed. Results are reported for two examples with hexagonal and trigonal crystal symmetry, respectively, and advantages and limitations of such texture analyses are discussed.
