Texture Investigations of Zircaloy-4 Tubes by Neutron Diffraction
This article presents the results of texture investigations of Zircaloy-4 tubes. Neutron diffraction and inversion pole figures were used to chracterize the texture of samples. The main interest is given to the analysis of texture changes under different tensile test conditions including tensile force direction, annealing temperature and tensile test temperature. Four different specimens of different orientation to the tube axis were tested.
