Crystallographic Textures Variation in Asymmetrically Rolled Steel


Article Preview

The crystallographic texture formation in low carbon steel during asymmetric rolling was studied experimentally and analysed numerically. Modelling of plastic deformation was done in two scales: in the macro-scale using the finite element method ( FEM) and in crystallographic scale using the polycrystalline deformation model (LW model). The stress distribution in the rolling gap was calculated using FEM and next these stresses were applied in LW model of polycrystalline plastic deformation. In general, the predicted textures agree very well with experimental ones.
