    Abstract: This paper covers the influence of crystallographic texture on the mechanical properties in two of the most important high strength Al-Zn-Mg family of aluminium alloys, viz., AA7075 and AFNOR7020 alloys, used in the Aerospace industry. AFNOR7020 Alloy developed a stronger texture compared to the other two alloys. S component of texture is stronger in AA7075 alloy whereas the Bs component is stronger in AFNOR7020 alloy. This is attributed to the shear banding which was found absent in the other alloy. The starting material, AA7075 in T7352 condition and AFNOR7020 in T652 condition show some degree of anisotropy of mechanical properties with regard to yield strength and ultimate tensile strength. Higher degree of deformation leads to more pronounced anisotropy in mechanical properties with regard to yield strength and ultimate tensile strength, with a maxima along the transverse direction. For the alloys, experimentally measured Plastic Strain Ratio, r value, which is a measure of the texture present in the material in the deformation conditions, agree well with the computed values with a maximum at 45o orientation to the rolling direction.
