Influence of the initial crystal orientation and carbon content on rolling texture was investigated using quasi-single crystals in 3.2 mass% Si steel. These specimens had {110}<001> and {110}<113> crystal orientation which were known for the near surface texture of the hot-rolled band. In the case of the ultra low-carbon specimens, initial {110}<001> rotated to {111}<112> after 66 % reduction cold rolling and initial {110}<113> rotated to near {211}<124>. It was thought that the crystal

In addition, {211}<124> has geometric character that if it rotates by an activation of one slip system, it will revert to the initial crystal orientation {211}<124> by an activation of another slip system. In the case of the specimens containing carbon, {110}<001> rotated to {111}<112> and {100}<011> caused by deformation twinning. On the other hand, {110}<113> rotated to {211}<113>-{111}<112> during the cold rolling. The deformation twinning was also observed. It was thought that the crystal orientation in the deformation twinning rotated to near {111}<112> by an activation of {110} slip system.
