Determination of the Elastic Tensor of a Textured Low-Carbon Steel
The components of the elastic stiffness tensor of hot rolled low-carbon steel were determined using an ultrasonic pulse-echo-method. They were also calculated on the basis of X-ray texture measurements using the Hill approximation. The maximum deviation between experimental and calculated values is 3.5%. An influence of the slightly anisotropic grain structure on the elastic anisotropy could not be seen.
