Texture formation and Swift effect were investigated in torsion deformed NiAl. High-strain torsion of solid bars was done with a Paterson rock deformation machine at temperatures between 700 K and 1300 K under a confining pressure of 400 MPa. The maximum shear strains and shear strain rates applied were and , respectively. Textures were measured by diffraction of neutrons, electrons, and synchrotron radiation. The textures consist of an oblique cube and Goss component, the intensity of which depends on the initial texture and deformation temperature. The axial lengthening and shortening observed are related to the Goss and the oblique cube components, respectively. There is qualitative agreement between experiment and simulation at low temperature and low shear strains. With increasing temperature, continuous and discontinuous dynamic recrystallization take place, strongly influencing the development of texture and Swift effect.
