The development of rolling textures at room temperature rolling of copper single crystals of the six important orientations are systematically investigated. In particular, the inhomogeneity of the texture development over the sheet thickness was carefully measured. The results showed that contradictions reported in the literature are a result of these inhomogeneities which have not been given sufficient attention before. The observed textures indicate that large shear deformations occur over the whole thickness of the rolled sheet. From similarities in the textures of single crystals and polycrystals it can be concluded that the deformation of individual crystallites in polycrystals occurs according to the Sachs principle rather than to the Taylor principle. The reasons for this behaviour are discussed. © 1977.
