Three-dimensional orientation distribution functions were calculated from neutron diffraction pole figures of unwound cylinders taken at different distances from the centre of cold drawn Al-wires. Their features change from the axially symmetric type at the very centre of the wire towards a texture near to the rolling type at the surface. Relations between the three-dimensional function and ordinary fibre texture pole figures were used to study the dependence of the textures on certain processing variables for cold drawn as well as recrystallized wires.
