Effect of modes of rolling on evolution of the texture in pure copper and some copper-base alloys

Part I: Rolling texture

Satyam Suwas, A. K. Singh, K. Narasimha Rao and T. Singh


Effect of different modes of rolling deformation and its role in the development of crystallographic texture has been studied for pure Cu, and Cu(Cr) and Cu(P) alloys with a view to obtain a very fine grained microstructure and very weak texture after annealing. Results indicate that textures developed after unidirectional rolling, two-step cross-rolling and multi-step cross-rolling are different. It has been shown that a transition of Cu type to the brass type is possible by changing the deformation mode during cold rolling.
