Title: Effects of grain interactions on deformation and local texture in polycrystals

Abstract

Detailed simulations of grain deformation and crystal orientation evolution in a small region at the interior of polycrystal have been performed. The finite element model accounts for deformation by crystallographic slip and for crystal lattice rotation with deformation. The initial shapes and orientations of the grains and the crystal hardening relations were determined from polycrystalline aluminum samples. The results clearly demonstrate the effects of grain interaction on local deformation and texture evolution. A comparison of the predicted lattice orientations with results from plane strain compression experiments shows good agreement for some of the grains and little agreement for others. Part of the discrepancy results from kinematic restrictions which were necessary to model the 3D microstructure with 2D models. The model shows very nonuniform strain fields and provides detailed information on grain interactions.
