We present a feasibility study to extract quantitative texture and precise crystal structure information of polycrystalline monoclinic NiTi shape-memory alloys from a simultaneous refinement of 52 time-of-flight neutron-diffraction patterns taken in 13 orientations in the diffractometer. The multiple-data-set capabilities and the generalized spherical harmonic texture model of the GSAS program system were employed.
