Dr. Ralf Hielscher
MTEX Workshop 2018

Chemnitz MTEX Workshop 2018


The aim of this workshops is to provide an easy start for MTEX beginners and to bring together MTEX users to share their ideas and to inform about recent developments in MTEX. The workshop will be divided into four parts:

A simple introduction to MTEX

The first two days of the workshop are devoted to a comprehensive introduction into MTEX by Ralf Hielscher that covers
  • crystal geometry
  • analysis of EBSD data, grains, boundaries
  • misorientation analysis, twinning
  • analysis of pole figure data
  • odf analysis
  • elastic and plastic deformation
and includes guided exercieses in our computer lab.

Recent developments in MTEX

In the second part Ralf Hielscher will report about recent features that have been added to MTEX. Up to now those include
  • Orientation and misorientation cluster analysis
  • Parent to child orientation relationships in phase transistions

Introductory talks given by the invited speakers

The following experts will provide tutorials and exercises to their specific use of MTEX.
Ben Britton
(Imperial College London, UK)

Advancing orientation analysis

Rüdiger Kilian
(Universität Basel, Switzerland)

Combined texture and microstructure analysis on earth materials

Wolfgang Pantleon
(Danmarks Tekniske Universitet)

Deformation structure vs. grain structure

David Mainprice
(Universite Montpellier, France)

The role of orientations and misorientations in phase transformations and metamorphic reactions

Talks by the participants about specific problems that have been or could be handled with MTEX

The participants are encouraged to present recent or potential applications of MTEX to their field of research. Talks will be 15 to 30 minutes depending on the number of speakers.
