Modeling of Nucleation Spectra for Primary Recrystallization and Application to Through-Process Texture Modeling
Schemes to model deformation inhomogeneities and nuclei distributions based on the grain cluster model for deformation texture simulation GIA are presented. The orientation distributions of nuclei in stable orientations, nuclei in grains with orientation gradients and nuclei due to subgrain growth at grain boundaries are predicted. Additionally, nuclei with a random orientation distribution are considered, reflecting nucleation at shear bands or large constituent particles. Furthermore, models for a quantitative assessment of the participating nucleation mechanisms are proposed. The resulting nucleation texture was input to the static recrystallization texture model StaRT. The through-process texture development during a sequence of several hot rolling, cold rolling and annealing steps in industrial production of the aluminum alloy AA5182 is presented.
