Texture versus Residual Deformation Effects in Metal Materials: Principles of Experimental Approach and General Regularities


Article Preview

For systematic study of the distribution of residual deformation effects in textured metal materials the method of Generalized Pole Figures was developed, combining texture measurement with X-ray line profile measurements in such a manner that the profile of the same X-ray line (hkl) is registered by each successive position of the sample. The obtained totality of profiles after that or another treatment is used for construction of Generalized Pole Figures (GPF), i.e. distributions of measured diffraction parameters or calculated substructure parameters in the stereographic projection of the sample depending on the orientation of reflecting crystallographic planes. As applied to metal materials with developed rolling textures it was found that any volume ~1 mm3 is characterized by an extremely wide spectrum of substructure conditions. Three laws of substructure anisotropy were revealed for the first time. The 1st law: Residual deformation effects are minimal along directions, corresponding to maximal density of crystallographic axes, i.e. texture maxima, and increase up to highest values by passing to texture minima. The 2nd law concerns variation of lattice parameters in metal products due to elastic microstrain: For each grain with crystalline lattice, extended along axis by (+ε), there is its pair with the symmetric orientation, where along axis crystalline lattice is compressed by (-ε), so that accompanying elastic microstresses are equilibrated. The 3rd law: By passing from residual tension of the crystalline lattice to its compression, grain fragmentation changes depending on indexes of the reference axis, i.e. tensile and compressive elastic deformations of the crystalline lattice differ in their uniformity.
