Modelling Static Recrystallisation Textures Using a Coupled Crystal Plasticity-Phase Field Technique
An integrated crystal plasticity-phase field model has been developed to simulate the static recrystallisation textures of both Face-Centred Cubic (FCC) and Body-Centred Cubic (BCC) metals. Nucleation sites are determined using the Orientation Dependent Recovery (ODR) theory. Both the interface mobility and the grain boundary energy are set to be dependent on mis-orientation angles in the simulations. A pre-deformed microstructure without a particular texture is generated using a Monte Carlo simulation. Plane strain compression textures before recrystallisation are predicted by a Crystal Plasticity Finite Element (CPFE) model showing a good agreement with the typical experimental rolling textures. It is shown that the typical recrystallisation textures for FCC and BCC metals can be simulated correctly using a Phase Field (PF) method by choosing appropriate critical values for the nucleation criterion. A comparison between the two different nucleation criteria based on the ODR theory or the stored energy is also presented.
