The oriented-nucleation and oriented-growth for recrystallization (Rex) textures of electrodeposits, vapor deposits, and plastically deformed metallic materials have been discussed based on the strain-energy-release-maximization (SERM) model. When the Rex orientation predicted by the SERM model from major components of the deformation texture is the same as a minor component in the deformation texture that is calculated to be thermally stable by the SERM model, the calculated Rex orientation is sure to become the main component of the Rex texture. This implies that the oriented-nucleation and the oriented-growth affect the evolution of the Rex texture. For polycrystalline materials, the Rex orientation predicted by the SERM model is likely to be measured because heterogeneous nucleation can occur in grain boundaries even when shear bands are absent. In other words, the grain boundaries are unlikely to control the Rex texture and the oriented growth dominates the Rex texture.
