ABSTRACT: Measurements of the average texture on sheet of commercial pure aluminium have been performed using neutron diffraction and electron back-scattering diffraction (EBSD). Orientation distribution function maps have been calculated and compared. The results show a good correspondence provided that the data from the EBSD measurements are corrected according to a texture index versus inverted number of measurement procedure. Most errors are probably related to differences in investigated volume and calculation technique and to the fact that the microstructure was difficult for EBSD measurements.
