The effect of sheet thickness on shear deformation and texture for the ferrite rolling has been studied. The shear deformation was estimated from the distorted shape of inserted wire before rolling and FEM simulation. The deformed shape of inserted wires and FEM results showed that the shear strain decreased with increasing initial sheet thickness. The measured and simulated textures also showed that the Goss component changed to Dillamore component as the thickness increased. From rolling simulation of 20 % reduction, the minimum shear deformation was found to exist for the given roll bite geometry and friction coefficient.
