A composite model for plastic deformation of semi-crystalline polymers is used to simulate deformation textures evolution in these two-phase materials. Three types of textures are simulated crystallographic texture, morphological texture, and molecular alignment within the amorphous domains. Predictions of these textures in deformed high density polyethylene HDPE are shown for a uniaxial tension test.
