Heavily rolled in-situ MMCs of Cu-20 vol% Nb have been investigated by means of quantitative texture analysis mainly for three reasons. First, the crystallographic texture can be very sensitive to the deformation process. Second, the orientation distribution affects the strength of the material in terms of the Taylor factor. Third, the influence of a massive second phase on texture development is of general interest for texture evolution of in-situ processed composites. The textures of both phases in the MMC were compared to those of single phase Cu and Nb, respectively. The results were interpreted by means of Relaxed Constraints Taylor Theory.
