Symposium: Structural Transitions and Local Deformation Processes at and near Grain Boundaries


A hybrid Monte Carlo (HMC) approach is employed to quantify the influence of inelastic deformation on the microstructural evolution of polycrystalline materials. This approach couples a time explicit material point method (MPM) for deformation with a calibrated Monte Carlo model for grain boundary motion. A rate-independent crystal plasticity model is implemented to account for localized plastic deformations in polycrystals. The dislocation energy difference between grains provides an additional driving force for texture evolution. This plastic driving force is then brought into a MC paradigm via parametric links between MC and sharp-interface (SI) kinetic models. The MC algorithm is implemented in a parallelized setting using a checkerboard updating scheme. As expected, plastic loading favors texture evolution for grains that have a bigger Schmid factor with respect to the loading direction, and these are the grains most easily removed by grain boundary motion. A macroscopic equation is developed to predict such texture evolution.
