Evolution of Texture and Strain States in AA 3003 Sheet during Sandwich Rolling
This work focuses on the strain states of the mid AA 3003 strip sandwiched in between either AA 3003 sheets or STS 430 sheets. For that purpose, the strain states at various through-thickness layers were analyzed by measurements of crystallographic texture and by simulations with the finite element method (FEM). During sandwich rolling, the material property of outer sheets of sandwich samples played an important role in the evolution of the strain states and the corresponding texture formation. In the mid AA 3003 sheets, rolling with the harder outer sheets gave rise to pronounced through-thickness texture gradients, whereas fairly uniform strain states prevailed during rolling with the outer sheets of the same AA 3003.
