Neutron Diffraction Texture Analysis in Extruded Al-Pb Composites
The textures of the two phases of Al–Pb composite samples of various compositions extruded 96% at room temperature were determined by neutron diffraction. In both phases the degree of texture decreases with an increase in amount of the other phase. In the case of the harder Al-phase, this is due to the decreasing internal deformation degree of the hard Al-particles in the soft Pb-matrix. In the case of the softer Pb-phase, the decrease must be related to increasing turbulence of flow in the soft phase. Furthermore, this phase was recrystallized after extrusion.
