Paper Title:
Generalized Vertex Model - Study of Recrystallization in Copper
  Abstract

Classical vertex model till now described only the grain growth stage and not the primary recrystallization. In the present work the vertex model is first extended in order to take into account the both stages of recrystallization process. The influence of the stored energy is taken into account and some phenomenological laws describing the evolution of grain boundary energy and mobility with misorientation angle are used. Nucleation is considered to be site-saturated. The experimentally determined stored energy values, crystallographic orientations and boundary misorientation distributions are used in order to characterize the initial microstructure. The model is tested to study the recrystallization of 70% and 90% cold rolled polycrystalline copper during an annealing treatment. In order to explain the texture evolution in both cases, it is necessary to introduce an energy threshold for grain boundary movement, i.e. a minimal value of the stored energy difference between a nucleus and the deformed material necessary to provoke grain boundary motion. The developed model is shown to predict texture evolutions in good agreement with experimental data.
