The texture evolution in grade-8011 aluminum alloy has been investigated during cold rolling and intermediate annealing. The main textural components of a hot-rolled blank have been determined using X-ray diffraction analysis and their evolution during subsequent cold rolling and intermediate annealing has been studied. The effects of the textural components on the dimensions and the arrangement of ears have been estimated at every step of producing a cold-rolled strip. © 2015, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.
