Deformation and Recrystallization Textures of Rolled Uranium Sheet

The rolling and recrystallization textures in 300°C rolled uranium sheet were investigated using a Geiger counter diffractometer with the modified Schulz reflection technique. Seven sections of sheet material were used in order to obtain sufficient data for quantitative pole figures by the reflection technique. A special integrating specimen table was used for obtaining and recording the data automatically. The rolling texture was described in terms of several “ideal orientations” in which the stronger orientations have either the (110) or (010) poles in the vicinity of the rolling direction. The recrystallization texture of the sheet uranium was also described by several “ideal orientations” which are somewhat different, except in one case, than the as-rolled “ideal orientations.”
