Pole Figure Measurement Plan Influence on Accuracy ODF Coefficients Determined by Modified Harmonic Method
Influences of an X-ray experimental texture plan and of pole figure primary errors on the accuracy of the ODF coefficients are discussed. A modified harmonic method, which is a statistical method of ridge estimates, has been used for ODF restitution from pole figures. The plan of measurement of the pole figures was analysed on the basis of minimization of the primary experimental errors and the errors of the ODF restitution method. Principles of the optimum texture plan construction for hexagonal metals (magnesium example) and for the URD-6 texture diffractometer are considered.
