Simulation of Texture Evolution during Hot Rolling Deformation in FCC Materials
The evolution of hot rolling texture in FCC materials has been simulated numerically using a visco-plastic self-consistent (VPSC) polycrystal model. A finite element (FE) analysis with ABAQUS/StandardTM was conducted to evaluate the deformation gradients during hot rolling deformation. In order to capture crystallographic rotation during hot rolling deformation, an octahedral slip system was considered in a microscopic hardening model. The FE analysis with the VPSC polycrystal simulations successfully predicted the inhomogeneous texture development through the thickness direction in the hot-rolled Al-5wt%Mg alloy sheets.
