No recrystallization of austenite, Tnr, has an important influence on the transformed phase -fractions and the final crystallographic texture after hot deformation. This paper investigates the evolution of microstructure and texture components during hot-rolling in two austenitic region based on Tnr along with three different cooling trajectory and coiling in dual-phase steels and high strength low alloys steel. The recrystallization of the austenite, the austenite deformation followed by the austenite-to-ferrite transformation influence the final microstructure and texture in dual phase steels, have been examined by means of optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD) measurements. Recrystallized and deformed austenite have clearly different texture components and, due to the specific lattice correspondence relations between the parent austenite phase and its transformation products, the resulting ferrite textures are different as well.
