Mining & Materials Engineering : Concepts and quantitative methods for the description of the structure of minerals and materials are discussed. Special emphasis is placed on experimental techniques of texture measurement. Procedures are demonstrated for the control of deformation and recrystallization textures in order to obtain the properties required for industrial products. Finally, the correlation between texture and the anisotropy of elastic, plastic and magnetic properties of engineering materials is described and analyzed.
