Texture evolution in metals under mechanical stress: Application of a tensile stage on a laboratory X-ray system

  • J. te Nijenhuis (a1), N. Dadivanyan (a1) and D.J. Götz (a1)


The evolution of texture in copper has been studied in situ as a function of the applied mechanical stress. A uniaxial tensile stage was integrated onto a Eulerian cradle in a laboratory X-ray diffraction system, providing a platform for pole figure measurements on samples under an externally applied mechanical load. Thin strips of rolled copper were investigated at various stages of elongation. The pole figures were of good quality such that the orientation distribution function could be well determined. Changes in the orientation distribution function as a function of strain along the β-fiber could be clearly observed; the initial main component S is replaced by the Copper component at higher stages of elongation.
