Disorientations and work-hardening behaviour during severe plastic deformation

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articleResearchpeer-review


Orientation differences develop during plastic deformation even in grains of originally uniform orientation. The evolution of these disorientations is modelled by dislocation dynamics taking into account different storage mechanisms. The predicted average disorientation angles across different types of boundaries are in agreement with experimental data for small and moderate plastic strains. At large plastic strains after severe plastic deformation, saturation of the measured average disorientation angle is observed. This saturation is explained as an immediate consequence of the restriction of experimentally measured disorientation angles to angles below a certain maximum value imposed by crystalline symmetry. Taking into account the restrictions from crystalline symmetry for modelled disorientation angles does not only lead to an excellent agreement with experimental findings on Ni after high pressure torsion, but also rationalizes the work-hardening behaviour at large plastic strains as well as a saturation of the flow stress.
