Abstract

The demand for nondestructive characterization of texture in hexagonal close packed (hcp) materials has been increasing rapidly in the last few years, particularly in aerospace and nuclear industries for quality control purposes. Texture study has traditionally been done by X-ray or neutron diffraction techniques. These diffraction techniques are generally slow or destructive. Recent advances in ultrasonics have shown that texture can also be determined by fast and nondestructive ultrasonic techniques [1,2,3]. An ultrasonic texture measurement instrument is currently being built at Iowa State University which can calculate texture parameters of cubic polycrystallites in a few seconds [4].
