Abstract: Development of recrystallization texture in cold-rolled Ti-bearing IF-steel was investigated using X-ray diffraction, Electron Back Scattered Diffraction/Orientation Imaging Microscopy (EBSD/OIM) and TEM. During cold-rolling, both the alpha (RD//[110]) and the gamma (ND//[111]) fibres were observed to be strengthened, although the increase in alpha was more pronounced. Simulations of the cold-rolling using Taylor type theories demonstrated an approximate predictability of the textural changes. Recrystallization strengthened the gamma, as F (= {111}[112]) increased but E (={111}[110]) remained essentially unchanged. A corresponding decrease in alpha, more in H (={001}[110]) than in I (=z{112}[110]), was also observed. The strong gamma-fibre recrystallization texture was mainly due to the larger numbers (i.e. 'frequency advantage') of the gamma-oriented grains, as the gamma rains were no larger than grains of other orientations. TEM studies showed an increase in cell size and a decrease and cell misorientation (which means an increase in stored energy) from H double right arrow I double right arrow E double right arrow F. With the exception of a slight drop from E to F, increase in the Taylor factor always corresponded to an increase in the stored energy. The spread of stored energies, corresponding to inhomogeneities in dislocation substructure, were observed to increase from I double right arrow H double right arrow E double right arrow F. A combination of the higher stored energy and the stronger inhomogeneities in dislocation substructure is possibly responsible for the preferred nucleation behavior causing the frequency advantage for the gamma grains.
