Abstract

We propose a novel approach to model diffraction peak shifts caused by residual or applied stresses in textured polycrystals. The models yields the complete strain and stress tensors as a function of crystallite orientation, as well as the average values of macroscopic strain and stress tensors. It is particularly suitable for introduction in Rietveld-refinement programs. We give the requirements on refinable parameters for all crystal Laue classes. The effects of sample symmetry are also included and conditions for strain invariance to both symmetries are discussed.
