    Abstract

    A continuum dynamic relaxation finite element (FE) model of rolling was used to obtain the boundary conditions for a FE texture model. Grain-to-grain interaction was included successfully, although grains were represented by only one element. Texture in the rolled sheet was predicted well, to moderate deformations, even without including material-specific features of deformation. The transition from a shear texture to a plane strain compression texture in AA3004 as roll diameter increased was predicted successfully. The volume fractions of the major components of texture in the surface and the center of the strip agreed with those previously reported for aluminum alloy 3004.
