    Abstract

    To determine the texture gradient through the tube wall of Zircaloy tubing quantitatively, a coupled method of the reflection technique with chromium K-alpha radiation and the transmission technique with molybdenum K-alpha radiation was examined. The absorption correction for the transmission technique was made by a solid specimen with random orientation, and the specimen was also used for determining the slit configurations of the techniques. It was confirmed that the coupled method gave the identical full pole figures and f-parameters to those obtained by the reflection method with composite specimens. The specimen preparation for the coupled method was easier than that for the reflection method.
