Abstract : Techniques have been developed to quantitatively plot pole figures using x-ray diffraction. Corrections are made for background and defocusing effects and the data is converted from angular coordinates to orthogonal coordinates using stereographic mapping equations. The x-ray data is taken using a modified Siemens Pole Figure Goniometer and plotting is done via CDC 6600 and SC 4020 processing. Calculation of an anisotropy index (K sub A) is made from the basal plane pole figures of titanium and empirically related to mechanical properties. (A THOR)
