Modeling the Evolution of Orientation Distribution Functions during Grain Growth of some Ti and Zr Alloys


Article Preview

A 2D cellular automaton model developed for the simulation of grain growth in hexagonal metals is presented here. It allows the direct use of experimental measurement as input data. Texture evolution of a titanium alloy and a zirconium alloy are simulated on the basis of simple hypothesis and compared with experimental evolution as well as the results from a 3D Monte Carlo model. Results from both models are discussed with regards to their characteristics.
