Recrystallization Modeling of AA8XXX alloys with Cellular Automata Considering Recovering Kinetics
A through-process modeling scheme for the prediction of recrystallization textures and microstructures after final annealing, subsequent to cold rolling is proposed and applied to a commercial Al[BOND]Fe[BOND]Si alloy. The heart of the setup is a cellular automaton for modeling of recrystallization which considers changes in dislocation density by recovery and changes in Zener and solute drag due to microchemistry evolution. However, recrystallization is the crucial point in the whole setup, since it leads to significant changes in microstructure and texture. The simulated results are compared to experiments.
