Title: White beam microdiffraction experiments for the determination ofthe local plastic behaviour of polycrystals

Abstract

The overall plastic behavior of polycrystalline materialsstrongly depends on the microstructure and on the local rheology ofindividual grains. The characterization of the strain and stressheterogeneities within the specimen, which result from the intergranularmechanical interactions, is of particular interest since they largelycontrol the microstructure evolutions such as texture development,work-hardening, damage, recrystallization, etc. The influence ofmicrostructure on the effective behavior can be addressed byphysical-based predictive models (homogenization schemes) based either onfull-field or on mean-field approaches. But these models require theknowledge of the grain behavior, which in turn must be determined on thereal specimen under investigation. The microextensometry technique thathas been developed at the LMS-X allows the determination of the surfacetotal (i.e., plastic + elastic) strain field with a micrometric spatialresolution. On the other hand, the white beam X-ray microdiffractiontechnique developed recently at the Advanced Light Source enables thedetermination of the elastic strain with the same spatial resolution. Forpolycrystalline materials with grain size of about 10 micrometers, acomplete intragranular mechanical characterization can thus be performedby coupling these two techniques. The very first results obtained onplasticallydeformed copper and zirconium specimens arepresented.
