The Effect of Initial Orientation and Rolling Schedule on Texture Development in Duplex Steel
A development of deformation textures was examined in ferritic-austenitic duplex type steel subjected to cold-rolling within the range up to 90% of reduction by applying different rolling schedules. The investigations included X-ray phase analysis, texture measurements and microstructure observations by means of light microscopy. The experimental results indicate at the occurrence of strong initial textures in both component phases after preliminary thermo-mechanical treatment. Formation of the ferrite-austenite banded structure in the course of rolling along with the stability of major texture components, related by Bain orientation relationship, exert considerable effect on the development of the ferrite and austenite rolling textures.
