Role of Recovery in the Recrystallization Simulation Application to a Cold Rolled IF-Ti Steel and a Cold Drawn Copper Wire
A simple model including the recovery and nucleation kinetics is proposed to simulate recrystallization using a Monte Carlo technique. Nucleation is simulated on the basis of equations describing stored energy evolution and subgrain growth kinetics. The parameters describing the stored energy evolution during recovery are shown to influence not only the relative number, orientation and local distribution of nuclei, but also the recrystallization kinetics and the final texture. The estimated kinetics of nucleation, the mean stored energy evolution as well as the preferential texture of first nuclei are in agreement with experimental observations for annealing 40% cold-rolled IF-Ti steel and cold drawn copper wires.
