The rolling and recrystallization texture development of a high purity Al-3wt%Mg alloy was investigated. Al-Mg alloys are well known to exhibit large amounts of deformation inhomogeneities (shear bands). The influence of these shear bands on the texture development is presented and the results are discussed in terms of various theories.
