Abstract: A procedure has been developed to incorporate omputationally costly physically based crystal plasticity models to calculate texture and anisotropy for steady state forming processes online. When using these models, at every point in the deformed zone, an average and a nonlinear solution procedure for stresses and/or strains in all these grains is required. The online calculation cost is avoided by offline creating a database with texture and anisotropy data for all possible deformation modes of the process. The case studied is a cold rolling process, but can easily be extended to any type of forming process, when the deformation field is known in advance. Textures and anisotropy data are predicted using a viscoplastic selfconsistent model, but the method is suitable for any kind of crystal plasticity model. Single crystal plastic parameters, such as the critical resolved shear stress, the single crystal hardening parameters, and the strain-rate sensitivity, have been calibrated based on mechanical tests by means of a direct search simplex algorithm. The online calculated deformation history is compared to the histories stored in the database and the best match is selected. The deformation history is divided in two zones, the one before the neutral point where forward shearing occurs and the one after the neutral point where backward shearing occurs. One online deformation generation and selection procedure requires 0.005 s of CPU time for a database with a division in deformation gradients fine enough to accurately cover all deformations. The method allows calculating yield surfaces at any point in space based on microstructural effects modeled by crystal plasticity, without incremental material updating and necessity to define a kinematic and isotropic hardening,
which makes the method suitable for fast models to calculate rolling forces and torques online.
