Texture Evolution in Invar® Deformed by Asymmetrical Rolling


Article Preview

Asymmetrical rolling, in which the circumferential velocities of the working rolls are different, is a method to impose shear deformation and in turn shear deformation texture to sheet through the thickness. The Invar® alloy has been deformed by asymmetrical rolling with a 84% thickness reduction. The texture of the deformed and annealed alloy was measured by X-ray diffraction at different levels through the thickness: upper side- middle- down side, with unidirectional rolling. The deformed texture is a copper type texture but the components were rotated about 5-7° around the Transverse Direction (TD) axis as compared to the ideal position of these components in the pole figure representation. During recrystallization, the rolling components (brass {011}<112>,copper {112}<111>, aluminum {123}<634>) decrease quickly whereas the cube component {001}<100> is preferentially developed after a short annealing time. However, the rolling components do not disappear completely after complete recrystallization (120 minutes annealing). As a consequence the final texture contains a high cube component and rolling components.
