Asymmetrical rolling was performed by rolling AA 1050 sheets with different velocities of upper and lower rolls. In order to study the effect of roll gap geometry on the evolution of strain states and textures during asymmetrical rolling, the reduction per rolling pass was varied. After asymmetrical rolling, the outer thickness layers depicted shear textures and the center thickness layers displayed a random texture. With decreasing reduction per an asymmetrical rolling pass, the thickness layers depicting shear textures increases. The strain states associated with asymmetrical rolling were investigated by simulations with the finite element method (FEM).
