The initial orientation has split into two equally strong symmetric orientations: (112)[111¯] and (112)[1¯1¯1]. Areas of identical orientation were band shaped and were called deformation bands. Up to 60% reduction, deformation occurs by slip on one plane (one from two possible) in two directions. This leads to the appearance of deformation bands with transition bands between them. Due to such deformation the initial orientation rotates around transverse direction towards the end-orientation {112}111. Due to rotation of the crystallographic lattice with deformation, the Taylor factor M changes as well, and it causes the activation of two not coplanar slip systems which stabilize the end-orientations {112}111. Such a sequence of the slip systems activation was concluded from the agreement of the calculated and experimental pole figures. The electron microscopy investigations showed that first shear bands formed due to the activation of these new slip systems.
