The nature of the thermomechanical processing of materials can be revealed by means of various numerical approaches. The accuracy of a particular model is linked to the boundary conditions employed. Intensive research activities over the past several decades in the field of finite element modeling (FEM) have enabled the development of various processing chains for particular purposes; however, this technique is computationally expensive, and in many instances, the behavior of materials during a processing step is analyzed by highly efficient analytical models. This contribution focuses on the implementation of a recently developed flow-line model (FLM), which enables the effective texture simulation of cold rolling. The results of numerous calculations, performed for a wide spectrum of roll gap geometries and various friction conditions, revealed that the deformation history predicted by the FLM employed was comparable to FEM calculations. A correlation was defined between the FLM model parameters and the rolling process quantitative indicators, implying that this analytical approach is capable of performing simulations of cold rolling without fitting constraints. It was shown that FLM coupled with a Taylor-type homogenization crystal plasticity model (Alamel) could carry out a texture simulation close to the one performed with deformation history obtained by means of FEM.
