Mechanical Behavior


Methods are described for the calculation of the elastic and plastic properties of textured polycrystalline metals. The calculations involve the crystallite orientation distribution function derived from X-ray texture data together with data which describe the single crystal behavior. Subsequently, it is shown how a knowledge of the elastic properties can be used to make an analytical prediction of the plastic properties. In making this prediction use is made of the fact that for cubic metals both the elastic and plastic properties are influenced predominantly through the zeroth and fourth order coefficients of the crystallite distribution function. The methods are illustrated by application to the analysis of the data of Stickels and Mould. The statistical correlation they observed is shown to have a justifiable analytical basis.
