Textures in low-carbon steels are of great significance in view of their strong influence on important physical properties such as formability and magnetic induction. Recent studies on the formation and evolution of textures through different processing stages of hot rolling, cold rolling and annealing have brought out many unique features, e.g. presence of complete and almost ideal fibre axes, inheritance of texture, texture memory effect and parallels between single crystal and polycrystalline situations. In particular, it has been possible to develop a fairly cogent picture of the genesis and perpetuation of the Goss texture.
