analytic calculations are presented for the deformation induced ODF in a sheared FCC polycrystal. The uniform strain (Taylor) hypothesis and the theory of rate dependent slip are used. The fibre considered contains three interesting ideal orientations, and periodic ODF variations are observed. The present predictions, which can be readily and rapidly obtained, are useful for testing computer codes for the simulation of large deformation textures.
