Texture development and grain refinement of interstitial-free (IF) steel as a function of ideal simple shear or torsion was undertaken for up to 8 pressings, Route BC- Dominant texture components evolved after a single pass and remained correspondent for all subsequent passes. End-cycle (4 and 8 pass) orientation distribution functions (ODFs) showed an increased spread of contour levels and the re-appearance of texture components similar to the 0-pass condition. Rotation of torsion components away from their ideal pole figure (PF) orientations increased at mid-cycle and decreased to almost equivalent levels after end-cycle passes. This is attributed to the principle slip directions of BCC structures aligning with the shear direction.
