"The production of rods by cold drawing is a development of recent years as compared to other methods of fabrication. Though a good many investigations correlating the observed mechanical properties to the mill practices employed have been reported, the results nevertheless are more of a qualitative and empirical nature. It is well known that the physical properties of a metal product are related to its deformation textures which are characteristic of the metal and the fabricating method used. Thus a study of the deformation textures of cold-drawn rods, specially by x-ray diffraction techniques should provide a much more precise and direct correlation of the mechanical properties of the product and the mill practice.
Statement of the problem. This study was undertaken (1) to determine the textures developed in nickel during cold drawing, (2) to determine whether the effect of cold drawing is uniformly distributed over the cross-section of the drawn rod, and (3) to develop a satisfactory explanation of the observed deformation textures of cold drawn nickel"--Abstract, page 1.
