The aim of this project is to examine the possibilities of using ultrasonic waves to detect bulk texture information in HCP materials, and to develop a technique and an instrument to achieve this goal.

Experimental studies are carried out to examine the scientific nature of wave propagation in poly-crystal Hexagonal Close-Packed (HCP) aggregates.
