Effect of Grain Boundary Characteristics on Lattice Orientations
Grain boundary characteristics are defined by five parameter, grain boundary plane normal and misorientation angle/axis between two adjacent grains. The influence of the grain boundary character distribution on lattice evolution during deformation was investigated using three-dimensional crystal plasticity finite element method (CPFEM). Various combinations of grain boundaries were modeled systematically. In analyzing the numerical microstructural characterization obtained by the simulation, orientation average scheme and correlation parameters between misorientation and its special distribution are used. Inter- and intra-grain structures were investigated using the spatial distribution of lattice orientation. Main emphasis was placed on misorientation distributions around grain boundaries, where grain interaction mainly occurred.
