    Abstract

    The crystallographic texture of fabricated components from zirconium alloy has a significant effect on their in-service performance because of texture-dependent properties. Quantitative characterization of this texture in various zirconium alloy tube samples was conducted using pole figure technique and Kearns methodology. Corresponding texture parameters were calculated for both the methods and were found to be similar for samples with strong radial texture. However, the same was not true for samples with transverse texture because of a defocusing error coming due to the geometry of a conventional pole figure technique. Hence, a modified method for such samples by pole figure method was developed which, in addition, solved the difficulties associated with both sample preparation and experiment for the Kearns method or complete pole figure method to a great extent.
