Model calculations of recrystallization texture formation are carried out on the basis of growth selection according to the 40111 orientation relationship. It is shown that the fastest growing “compromise” orientation depends very sensitively on the nature of the deformation texture components, their relative amount and their spread, as well as on the value of the rotation angle and the spread range of the growth rate law. On this basis the cube recrystallization texture as well as the brass recrystallization texture can be modelled without further assumptions. Also modifications of the recrystallization texture due to modifications of the starting deformation texture are sufficiently described by the model.
