Abstract

"The research problem, as presented, therefore became two-fold; first to investigate and determine the feasibility of fabrication of hafnium and secondly to study the deformation characteristics of the material in light of the overall study of hexagonal metals aimed at the development of an overall general theory of plastic deformation. This appeared to envolve a study of the operating deformation systems in hafnium and the theoretical and experimental study of the textures resulting from plastic deformation. These were to be analyzed in comparison with the other hexagonal metals.

It became evident immediately that the research techniques which must be evolved for the study of the textures of hafnium might have considerable application in subsequent work. Therefore the development of texture determination procedures using relatively refined equipment was considered part of the research problem"--Introduction, page 3.
