Effect of grain structure and strain rate on dynamic recrystallization and deformation behavior: a phase field-crystal plasticity model
AbstractIn this work, a phase field (PF)-crystal plasticity (CP) model has been developed to study the effects of initial grain structures, recrystallized grain orientation, and strain rates on dynamic recrystallization and deformation behavior under stress states typical of the Shear Assisted Processing and Extrusion (ShAPE) process. The model takes the geometrically necessary dislocation density as the nucleation criterion for recrystallization and minimizes the deformation energy as the driving force of recrystallized grain growth. Using this model, the effects of grain orientations and strain rates on dynamic recrystallization and deformation behavior were simulated. The results demonstrate that (1) a polycrystalline structure with the texture observed in ShAPE process has the lowest yield stress under the ShAPE stress conditions, (2) the recrystallized grains with the texture observed in ShAPE process largely soften the materials, and (3) higher shear strain rate or rotation speed results in larger magnitude of material softening.
