TexEvo is a program that predicts the texture evolution in orientation space, following the formulation of Kumar and Dawson. Users prescribe a macroscopic load and a set of crystal orientations. A Taylor-type assumption is made to calculate reorientation velocities for each crystal over a number of time steps. Time is incremented, and the current orientations of the crystals are calculated. At the last time step, the crystal orientations and the resulting orientation distribution function are output. Additionally, various images such as the initial and final orientation distribution functions may be output. TexEvo is coded in Fortran, and requires a Fortran compiler (GFortran recommended), and LAPACK/BLAS libraries. Optionally, it requires OpenMP for parallelization, and gnuplot for visualization.
