Paper Title:
Modelling Zener Pinning: A Comparison of Different Computer Simulation Methods
  Abstract

We compare the ability of three different types of microstructural model to simulate particle pinning. The microstructural models are the Phase Field model, the Front Tracking model and the Monte Carlo Potts model. The same 3D test geometry is simulated using each method. This is an hexagonal network with spherical particles located at the centre of each hexagonal grain. The hexagonal grain network provides a constant driving force for a moving boundary and includes triple line and quadruple point motion. This geometry allows detailed investigation of the boundary/particle interaction. The pinning force acting on the migrating curved grain boundary is calculated and compared with theoretical predictions for each model.
