The plastic anisotropy parameters (R coefficient and height of ears of the drawn cup) have been calculated from ultrasonic orientation distribution function (ODF) coefficients on the basis of Taylor theory for low carbon steel and aluminium alloy sheets. The ODF coefficients were defined by Sayers method and using the iterative procedure on the basis of measurement of bulk longitudinal and shear wave time delays.
