Modeling of Grain Growth with Second Phase Particle Pinning by Cellular Automata Method
A model for grain growth simulation, in the presence of the second phase particles, is established with the help of a Cellular Automata method. The effect of the time when the second phase particles are introduced on grain growth is simulated. The simulation results show that the second phase particles inhibit the grain growth and the earlier the particles are introduced, the better the pinning effect.
