The crystal plasticity finite element method is an ideal approach to simulate the mechanics, texture, and elastic-plastic anisotropy of materials. Experimental validation of such simulations requires to measure these quantities without the disturbing influence of friction known for instance from channel-die experiments. This work presents results obtained form simple shear deformation experiments of aluminium single crystals together with corresponding crystal plasticity finite element simulations.
