The construction of a nearly equal distant grid of orientations is presented. Based on that grid texture components can be determined automatically. The obtained set of components can be interpreted as an ensemble of single orientations representing the texture. The grid may be used for the simulation of texture modifying processes. As examples textures of experimental deformed rock salt and aluminium are compared with results of numerical simulations of deformation (Taylor model).
