This paper presents the measurement results of texture in an aluminum-magnesium alloy (Al5xxx) during annealing. The long term strategy is to gather information of texture and microstructure using in-situ ultrasonic measurement and to control the hot rolling process. The texture is characterized in terms of three orientation distribution coefficients (ODCs), i.e., W400, W420, and W440, which are inferred from ultrasonic velocity measurements. The electromagnetic-acoustic transducers (EMAT) are used to measure those quantitities because of their non-contact characteristics. We reported the preliminary results on the last year’s QNDE conference in Snowbird, Utah. The progress and recent measurement results are included in this paper.—Ames Laboratory is operated for the U.S. Department of Energy by Iowa State University under Contract W-7405-ENG-82.

    The aim of this work was to analyze the evolution of texture and the deformation anisotropy of a AA1050 after ECAP and further recrystallization. The initial material was processed by two different routes: the first set of samples came from a hot rolled band with a mixture of cube, copper and...

    The accuracy of measurement of a 0.51-mm thick, 6061 aluminum sample under lift-off variations of 0.25 mm at 1.08 is shown to be 5 percent by means of a complex-reluctance plane analysis. The analysis is shown to depend critically on the statistical accuracy of such measurements. Large lift-off...
