Control of crystallographic texture is critical for the development of wrought magnesium sheet product with sufficient levels of ductility and formability. While it is well-established that increasing peak intensity of the basal pole figure is correlated with reduced formability, the influence of other characteristics common in magnesium processing textures has not been examined. This work uses synthetic sheet textures in conjunction with a visco-plastic self-consistent polycrystalline plasticity model to predict deformation behavior and formability, isolating the influence of various texture characteristics. The roles of basal peak intensity, varied sheet plane anisotropy, prismatic plane distribution, and the presence of a rare earth texture component are considered. The changes in slip system activity, texture stability, and formability are presented.
