Determination of the elastic tensor of a textured low-carbon steel
Bestimmung des Elastizitätstensors einer texturierten Stahlprobe
The components of the elastic stiffness tensor of hot rolled low-carbon steel were determined using an ultrasonic pulse-echo-method. They were also calculated on the basis of X-ray texture measurements using the Hill approximation. The maximum deviation between experimental and calculated values is 3.5%. An influence of the slightly anisotropic grain structure on the elastic anisotropy could not be seen.
