    You should be able to answer these questions without too much difficulty after studying this TLP. If not, then you should go through it again!

    What is crystallographic texture?

    a The distribution of orientations of crystallites within a polycrystalline sample.
    b The orientation of a polycrystalline sample.
    c The distribution of orientations of crystallites within a single crystal.
    d The orientation of a surface of a sample.
    Answer

    A. The distribution of orientations of crystallites within a polycrystalline sample. A random texture describes a sample in which the crystallographic axes of the crystallites are oriented randomly, whereas a non-random distribution means that the material has crystallographic texture.

    Which of these are limitations of pole figures? (Select all that apply)

    a Specific hkl planes cannot be plotted
    b Poles in the final plot for a polycrystalline material are not identified with particular crystals
    c Information about the crystallite location in a sample is absent
    d The orientation of a crystal must be described relative to another
    Answer

    B and C

    Deeper questions

    The following questions require some thought and reaching the answer may require you to think beyond the contents of this TLP.

    A sample of rolled a-brass (ccp) has a very strong (110) [12] texture. Using a Wulff net, sketch stereograms showing the distribution of 111 and 200 poles with respect to the normal to the sheet and the rolling direction.

    Hint:

    When plotting the stereogram, begin by plotting the rolling direction (RD) [12] on the primitive of the stereogram and the normal direction (ND) [110] at the centre.
    Remember that rolled sheets always have mmm symmetry
