This article discusses the central aspect of anisotropy modeling, namely, texture measurement and analysis. It provides an overview of the methods available for characterizing crystallographic preferred orientation, or texture, in polycrystalline materials. These methods include pole figure measurement and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD). The article describes the process considerations for pole figure measurement, including X-ray diffraction, neutron diffraction, stereographic projection, equal area projection, graphing pole figures, typical textures, and orientation distribution. It also deals with the limitations and challenges associated with the EBSD, and applications of the diffraction.
