14: Crystallographic Texture

  • Page ID

    Learning Objectives

    On completion of this TLP package, you should:

    • understand the concept of crystallographic texture;
    • be aware of different methods of measuring and representing texture;
    • be aware of the effects of texture;
    • be able to identify specific textures from pole figures and crystal orientation distribution functions.

    Before you start

    You should be familiar with the use of stereograms to plot poles of crystals and have a good knowledge of atomic structure and be able to index planes with Miller indices. You should also be familiar with mechanisms of slip in single crystals.

    It would be helpful to read the following TLPs: Atomic scale structure, Crystallography, Miller indices, The Stereographic Projection, and Slip in Single crystals.

    Material in this TLP relates to a package found on the AluMATTER website explaining how stereograms can be used to represent texture: AluMATTER - representing texture
