Modelling of Dynamic Recrystallization in Hot Working
Dynamic recrystallization, on which grain size of the final forging depends mainly, is one of the most important microstructure evolution processes in moderate-to-low stacking fault energy metals. In this paper, the process of dynamic recrystallization is simulated by numerical method. The paper first gives a visco-plastic model considering dynamic recrystallization in detail; secondly gives the applied finite element formulation and compiles an finite element program in Visual Fortran 6.5 based on the updated Lagrangian formulation rigid-plastic finite element; thirdly the material parameters are identified through inverse analysis, based on the compiled finite element program and the developed global optimization method; at last, the compiled finite element program is applied to simulate the microstructure evolution caused by dynamic recrystallization, the calculated result agrees with the experimental result relatively well.
