Monte Carlo Simulation of Normal Grain Growth in Three Dimensions

Abstract:

Article Preview

A Monte Carlo algorithm for single-phase normal grain growth has been implemented, which allows one to simulate and observe the temporal development of large grain microstructures in three dimensions. The relaxation process to the self-similar coarsening regime has been studied by following the temporal development of quantities like the average grain size, the standard deviation of the grain sizes and topological correlations.
