Representation of Texture

Part of the Engineering Materials and Processes book series (EMP)


As has been stated already, texture of a rolled sheet material is commonly represented as {hkl} 〈uvw〉, which means that most of the grains in the sheet material are such that their {hkl} planes are nearly parallel to the rolling plane and the 〈uvw〉 directions of the grains are nearly parallel to the rolling direction. In practice, however, it may so happen that in a rolled sheet, a number of grains have their {h 1 k 1 l 1} planes parallel to the rolling plane and their 〈u 1 v 1 w 1〉 directions parallel to the rolling direction; another few grains may have their {h 2 k 2 l 2} planes parallel to the rolling plane and their 〈u 2 v 2 w 2〉 directions parallel to the rolling direction and so on. In that case, we say that the texture of the sheet material has a few components represented by {h 1 k 1 l 1} 〈u 1 v 1 w 1〉, {h 2 k 2 l 2} 〈u 2 v 2 w 2〉···, and so on.
