Paper Title:
Monte Carlo Modeling of Cube Texture Evolution in Ni-Tapes during Grain Growth
  Abstract

After primary recrystallization of highly rolled (>98% reduction) high purity Ni (99.999%) tapes the cube texture fraction can range from 45 - 65%. Annealing at temperatures >1000oC leads to cube texture volume fractions of >95% as a result of grain growth. A Monte Carlo Potts model was used to simulate this annealing process. The starting microstructures for the simulations were generated from experimental data taken using electron backscatter pattern analysis. The simulation results suggest that in addition to the grain boundary misorientation and energy functions used, the misorientation texture and grain sizes are also determining factors in the grain growth process. As the grain size after recrystallization is comparable to the tape thickness, the surface energy of the grains may also be an important factor. Simulations were therefore also carried using a surface energy term. If the cube grains have a lower surface energy then a stronger cube texture is predicted.
