Grain Boundary Engineering by Application of Mechanical Stresses

Abstract:

Article Preview

It is shown that an externally applied mechanical stress field can change the kinetics of individual grain boundaries. Moreover, such mechanical stresses also have influence on grain growth and recrystallization kinetics and can strongly affect the microstructure evolution, so that the application of mechanical stresses during annealing can be used as a new approach in the field of grain boundary engineering.
