Abstract

Electropulsing induced texture evolution in the primary recrystallization of a Fe-3 pct Si alloy strip was studied using the electron backscattered diffraction technique. The results revealed that the electropulsing strengthened considerably the recrystallization of a cold-rolled Fe-3Si alloy strip. Various textures with high-energy storages, such as α (100)〈110〉, γ (111)〈110〉, γ (111)〈112〉, and G-texture (110)〈001〉, formed after several seconds of electropulsing treatment (EPT), depending on the intensity of electropulsing. The athermal effect of electropulsing is 319 times stronger than the thermal effect of electropulsing for the formation of the G texture. The mechanism of electopulsing induced texture evolution is discussed from the point of view of Gibbs free energy and dislocation dynamics. © 2011 The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society and ASM International.
