Simulation of Deformation Texture Evolution Using an Intermediate Model


Article Preview

The aim of this work is to propose the use of an intermediate model for large viscoplastic deformations that could predict the texture transition and stress-strain behavior in a range that spans from the upper bound (Taylor) to the lower bound (Sachs) estimates. In this model, we introduced a single parameter as a weight function to formulate the intermediate model which combines the Taylor and Sachs estimates. For the applications, we focus on the three main tests: plane strain compression, uniaxial tension and compression. An FCC polycristal represented by 100 crystals with an initially random orientation is used. The results for texture evolution show that a transition between the copper and brass type textures can be obtained by the proposed intermediate model.
