Local Texture Evolution by Rate-Independent Polycrystal Model Allowing for Coordination of Interacting Crystals
A rate-independent polycrystal model, allowing for the shape and spatial coordination of neighboring constitutive crystals and for the plastic strain distribution among them, has been used to simulate the local texture evolution in an Al polycrystal under compression. The simulation results compare favourably to relevant experimental data and show the reorientation path of each crystal to strongly depend on orientations of its immediate neighbors.
