Processing Path Model to Describe Texture Evolution during Mechanical Processing
Using a processing path model based on the conservation principle in the orientation space explicit solutions can be formed linking any final (desired) microstructure to a given initial state for polycrystalline materials. The model uses texture coefficients in spherical harmonics expansion to as materials descriptors to represent the texture state of polycrystalline materials. In this work, the effect of increasing the maximum number of texture coefficients used in the series expansion (represented by Lmax) on the prediction of texture and its accuracy is fully studied.
