Description

Modelling the Micromechanics of Polycrystalline Materials

Overview

Finite element-based models form the core of a powerful set of tools for simulating the mechanical behaviours of polycrystalline solids. With these tools it is possible to study fundamental aspects of deformation mechanics at a microstructural scale and to better understand the roles of such factors as anisotropy, deformation heterogeneity,and grain interactions in determining the properties of polycrystalline solids. However, like many of the more intensive research tools, finite element-based tools are complex and require considerable investment of time and resources to fully exploit their potential. The goal of this workshop is to rapidly introduce researchers to one code, FEpX, and a number of auxiliary tools that constitute a complete capability for modelling polycrystalline solids.
