Modelling Nucleation of Recrystallisation in Aluminium Alloys
The predictions from a grain cluster deformation texture model, GIA, are utilized to study the nucleation texture of recrystallisation of aluminium alloys. In combination with a dislocation based work hardening model, the propensity of specific grains in their granular environment for select nucleation mechanisms is investigated. Quantitative criteria for the nucleation events can be formulated. The results can be fed into a growth model of recrystallisation to predict recrystallisation textures and lend themselves to through-process modelling.
