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.
