Texture development and substructure evolution are described for pure beryllium given two-pass equal channel angular extrusion (ECAE) processing following routes A and C. These routes impose different strain paths between the first and second passes—the former cross-shearing and the latter reversal. Polycrystal calculations that are in good agreement with the texture measurements suggest that basal slip and, secondly, prismatic slip are operative in both passes of both routes. Multi scale polycrystal modeling is shown to effectively predict texture evolution to strains of two caused by both ECAE processing routes. Shear-like deformation textures observed in the second pass of route C are explained by differences in deformation characteristics between the first and second passes.
