We consider a tensorial Fourier expansion of the crystallite orientation distribution function for aggregates of cubic crystals. The coefficient of rank four is determined explicitly. It is shown that this coefficient governs the anisotropic bounds of the linear elastic behavior of polycrystals. Recently, a phenomenological model has been proposed [4, 6], that describes the evolving elastic anisotropy in copper. The model also reproduces the cyclic Swift effect, which is due to a texture induced plastic anisotropy . In the model the anisotropic part of the effective elastic stiffness tensor is used to define a texture dependent quadratic yield function. The present paper gives a new interpretation of the aforementioned model in terms of an approximation of the crystallographic texture by means of a 4th-order coefficient of the tensorial Fourier expansion of the crystallite orientation distribution function.
