Estimation of Stored Energy Distribution from EBSD Measurements


Article Preview

Wire-drawn copper has been investigated with Electron Back Scattered Diffraction technique in a Scanning Electron Microscope after deformation by wire-drawing. In this paper, we show how to get qualitative informations about the deformation inhomogeneities related to the stored energy distribution, from the analysis of the quality index. Furthermore, the microstructural analysis in the wire diameter is completed using the quality index distribution approach. A relation between diameter of the wire and stored energy distribution is then qualitatively set. In order to validate the proposed method, the EBSD data are compared with the stored energy values obtained from neutron diffraction measurements.
