Analysis of Texture Formation and Microstructure Characteristics of Cold Rolled IF Steel Sheets
The aim of this work is to investigate the relationship between the deformation microstructure and texture in cold rolled Interstitial Free (IF) steel sheets. In the present research, the cold rolled IF steel sheets with 10%-50% reductions are used to observe the characteristic microstructure and individual orientations by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and SAED patterns. The experimental results on inter-granular strain homogeneity and dislocation wall formation are given in details in this paper. The results are explained by the analysis of crystallographic gliding and are helpful to improve the prediction of cold rolling textures.
