Rolling and recrystallisation textures of Fe–3% Si (HiB) were investigated in center and subsurface layer by the ODF-method. Degree of cold rolling and recrystallisation time were varied. The results were compared with results obtained for low carbon steel and the mechanisms of texture formation were discussed. At the beginning of the paper the different methods of representation of OVF data were demonstrated.
