The processing path model based on the conservation principle in the orientation space allows us to optimize processing path from a given initial state to a desired final microstructure for polycrystalline materials. This model uses texture coefficients in spherical harmonics expansion as descriptors to represent the texture state of polycrystalline materials. In this work, the effect of increasing the number of texture coefficients used in the series expansion (decided by lmax) on the prediction accuracy of texture evolution is investigated.
