The effect of strain path on work hardening and texture for a super austenitic stainless steel was investigated using both experiments and modeling. Compression deformation tests by stepwise changing loading direction in two and three dimensions were performed on cubic specimens at room temperature. The results were compared to uniaxial compression with equal accumulative strain, up to 20%, and uniaxial tension with equal final strain, up to 10% elongation of the longest side. The textures in all samples were analyzed using pole figures from EBSD analysis. Because of the high stacking fault energy of this super austenitic stainless steel, the texture was dominated by <110>-fiber texture in the compressive direction for the uniaxial compression, <111>- and <100>-fiber texture in the tensile direction for the uniaxial tensile test, and a combination of all these for the cube deformation. The density of the texture was much weaker for samples where the loading direction altered, if samples with equal accumulated strain were compared. The cube deformation was also modeled using a crystal plasticity model. The crystal plasticity model consists of a representative volume element (RVE) containing crystal grains with random orientations. The Taylor assumption was used for homogenization between the macro-and subscale. The material parameters in the crystal plasticity model were determined by calibration of its macroscopic response to experimental data. The simulated textures correspond rather well to the experimental results, but the work hardening should be completed to take into account kinematic hardening.
