In this study, the accumulative roll bonding and folding (ARBF) process was used for manufacturing nanostructured aluminum/copper multilayered composites. Textural evolution during the ARBF process of composites was evaluated using X-ray diffraction. Microstructural observation of some samples was evaluated by scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. The ARBF process induced formation of a strong preferred orientation along the β-fiber and also to the pronounced copper texture component. In the aluminum side, occurrence of dynamic recovery reduced the intensity of the β-fiber rolling texture due to change in dislocation structure and decrease in the degree of strain hardening. On the other hand, occurrence of discontinuous dynamic recrystallization at the third and fourth ARBF cycles led to decreasing the intensity of fibers and texture components in the copper side. The average grain sizes of the final sample for the copper and aluminum sides were ~50 and ~200 nm, respectively.
