Homogenization-based polycrystal plasticity models

In this short course the participants will review and compare the available models for polycrystals deforming in the viscoplastic regime. Basic elements, assumptions and range of applicability of the models will be presented. Discussion of hardening and texture evolution associated with several strain paths (rolling, torsion, compression) of different metallic materials, and a hands-on training on how to simulate polycrystal plastic forming using our Visco-Plastic Self-Consistent (VPSC) code will be provided.
