Computer color mapping for the primary grains near the growing front of secondary Goss-oriented grain in 3%Si steel was performed with an image analyzer using crystallographic orientation data measured by a Kossel examination.
The results are summarized as follows:
(1) Primary grains of 100< 001>~<0\ kl> are virtually unconsumed by the secondary Goss grain. Its result is consistent with the results of the previous experiments.
(2) The alternate configuration of primary grains having two equivalent orientations of near (342) [\bar430] and (342) [4\bar30] grains is also virtually unconsumed by the secondary Goss grain.
(3) The primary grains mentioned in (1) and (2) are formed during the decarburization and primary recrystallization treatment from the same deformed grains after cold rolling.
(4) The above-mentioned primary grains, which are unconsumed by the secondary Goss grain, have highly oriented crystallographic planes, but their axes deviate from each other.
