Through-Process Texture Simulation for Aluminium Sheet Fabrication


Article Preview

We introduce a simulation procedure for through-process texture and anisotropy prediction, in particular for AA5182 sheet production from hot rolling through cold rolling and annealing. The FEM package ‘T-Pack’ based on the software LARSTRAN served as a process model. It was combined with physics based microstructure models for deformation texture (GIA), work hardening (3IVM), nucleation texture (ReNuc), and recrystallization texture (StaRT). The terminal sheet texture was used for a FEM simulation of cup drawing. A new concept of interactively updated texture based yield locus predictions was employed. The simulation predictions were compared to experimental data. The procedure can be applied to a wide variety of Aluminum alloys.
