In the present study, the effects of kinematic and geometric asymmetries in rolling during multi-pass processing of IF steel are examined. The theoretical investigation by final element simulations and experimental investigations by means of electron-backscatter diffraction analysis and tensile tests suggest that asymmetric rolling increases the total imposed strain compared to symmetric rolling, and largely re-distributes the strain components due to additional shear. This enhances the intensity of grain refinement, strengthens and tilts crystallographic orientations, and increases mechanical strength. The effect is highest in the asymmetric rolling with differential roll diameters.
