Effect of Initial Texture on the Deformed Microstructure of IF Steel


Article Preview

The development of deformation texture and microstructure was examined for four different initial textures. IF steel sheets with a majority of α-, ε-, and γ-fiber and near random texture were prepared and cold rolled. The specimens exhibited characteristic behaviors in rolling texture evolution and deformation-induced misorientation development, according to their initial textures, especially at small strain levels. Due to the orientation dependence of intra-granular misorientation accumulation, the different texture evolutions affected the induced misorientation distribution. A larger fraction of γ-fiber orientations was related to more prominent misorientation development, while the initial texture stability simultaneously affected the misorientation development. The unstable, initial ε-fiber texture showed a stronger tendency of misorientation accumulation than the stable α-fiber during the subsequent cold rolling.
