Abstract: The change of the deformation path leads to destabilization of the substructure and affects the texture of the deformed metal. The observed changes of texture and microstructure are, as a rule, significant and their characteristics depend on the geometry of the deformation process. Previous investigations on copper (and copper alloy) samples after deformation by rolling and channel-die compression were based on X-ray pole figure measurements and on observations in the light microscope. Hereby only global texture and structural characteristics have been obtained. The present study is mainly based on measurements of individual crystal orientations performed by ACOM (Automated Crystal Orientation Measurement, “Automated EBSD”) in the SEM which enables a precise local analysis of the investigated phenomena. For the channel-die experiments, (1 1 2)[1 1 -1] and (1 1 2)[1 -1 0] oriented copper single crystals have been used. After pre-deformation, a second deformation step has been carried out in transverse direction. The {1 1 2}<1 1 0> orientations are destabilized by channel-die compression, and clusters of layers develop which are composed of complementary {1 1 0}<1 1 2> components. The deformation process in polycrystalline sheets after rotating the rolling direction leads again to a distinct disintegration of the microstructure and destabilization of the b fiber. This process of microstructure reorganization after pre-deformation is fast and of high dynamics.

Abstract: The objectives of this investigation are structural effects in electrolytic copper sheets which are caused by the change of the direction of rolling. Unidirectional, reverse as well as cross-rolling at 90° respectively at 45° to the precedent rolling direction have been applied down to final deformations as low as 80% reduction in thickness. Texture has been determined by ACOM (Automated Crystal Orientation Measurement, “Automated EBSD”) in the SEM and by X-ray pole figure measurement. The main benefits of ACOM are a high spatial resolution which enables the investigation of texture gradients from the mid plane to the surface of the sheet, and the visualization of the microstructure by crystal orientation mapping. In addition to local texture, statistical distributions of misorientations across grain boundaries and of S grain boundaries have been derived from the individual grain orientation data. The change of the path of plastic deformation induces a destabilization of the substructure which is formed during the primary step of unidirectional rolling. A distinct change of texture is found depending on the deformation process. In cross rolling, the b fiber changes into the unstable b90 fiber which almost disappears with progressive deformation along the new rolling direction.
