Initial recrystallization texture is influenced by the bulk content of sulfur and by the final reduction. At a given bulk content of sulfur, a lower final reduction is favorable for obtaining the initial {011} 〈100〉 Goss texture. Under a fixed final reduction, a lower bulk content of sulfur is good for this purpose. As the intensity of initial Goss texture increases, it is easier to obtain magnetic induction (B10). This is because the probability, that the initial Goss grains survive within the time range of highly segregated sulfur and have a chance for surface-energy-induced selective growth, becomes higher under the later segregated-sulfur-free condition.
