Abstract : The textural variation in the thickness direction of a 2-inch-thick 5 nickel steel plate, produced by controlled hot-rolling to 90% reduction, immediately water-quenched, then tempered, has been studied. Besides the surface texture, which differs from the interior texture at midthickness only in intensity and in rotational displacement, there is a drastic change in the nature of the texture at the intermediate sections. An analysis of the deformation-zone geometry of the rolling passes indicates that the present observations are consistent with those reported for cold-drawn or cold-rolled strips. The usefulness of this particular texture for textured armor research and future armor development is discussed.
