Evolution of Micro-Textures within Individual Grains in Rolled Polycrystal Aluminum
Local orientation distributions of two neighbouring grains initially orientated near (01l) and (210), in a pure Al poly-crystal aggregate rolled by a reduction of 65% at room temperature have been investigated using electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) technique. It was found that the rotation angles of zones adjacent to both sides of initial boundary (BP) are less than that of zones remote from the boundary (IP), which reveals that rotation incompatibility and heterogeneity of local orientations within individual grains during rolling. A type of improved Taylor type crystal plasticity models, in which an added prescribed shear (APS) depending on distances from grain boundary proposed, was established to illustrate development of micro-textures in each grain. The results simulated by the APS-Taylor models well agree with the micro-textures examined by EBSD.
