The relation between polycrystal deformation and single-crystal deformation

  • U. F. Kocks


A phenomenological description of crystallographic slip and pencil glide in single crystals is outlined, with emphasis on the behavior under prescribed strains. Theoretical relations are established between these single-crystal properties and the behavior of quasi-homogeneous, quasi-isotropic polycrystals deforming uniformly on a macroscopic scale, at subdiffusive temperatures. Experimental comparisons between single crystals and polycrystals are reviewed, considering flow stress, work hardening, temperature and strain rate effects, and various effects of grain size.
