Paper Title:
Roping Phenomena in Aluminium Alloy 6016: A Microtextural Investigation
  Abstract

Roping was investigated in two 6016 aluminium alloys that exhibit different levels of susceptibility to its occurrence. The level of roping is lower, as manifested by the less pronounced (roping) lines on the surface, in the GR material compared to the BR case. Through-process characterization of GR and BR materials by means of electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) reveals similarities in the grain size, (grain) orientation texture and the spatial distribution of {100} <001> Cube grains up to, but not including the T4 state. Cube grains in the T4 state are spatially banded in the BR material but more uniformly distributed in the GR case. It was found that the thermo-mechanical treatments prior to the T4 state account for the difference in spatial distributions of Cube grains and hence, the different roping behaviours exhibited by these materials.
