Grain Boundary Character Evolution during Grain Growth in a Zr Alloy
Grain boundary character in samples of Zr701 annealed at two different temperatures has been investigated in terms of lattice misorientation. The main difference between the two samples was the extent of grain growth post-recrystallization. The textures were typical for the material. Differences between the texture-based misorientation distribution function (T-MDF) and the microstructure-based MDF (M-MDF) revealed significant preferences for certain grain boundary types, notably those with <11-20> rotation axes.
