An attempt was done to improve the quality of deformation texture predictions by statistical models through the introduction of "clusters" of N grains thus defining a third, intermediate length scale. The interaction between each cluster and the macroscopic length scale is of the Taylor type, whereas inside each cluster a VPSC scheme is used. Predictions of cold rolling deformation textures were quantitatively compared with experimental results for a steel alloy. The results are encouraging.
