Abstract

A hybrid finite element formulation for the plastic deformation of FCC metals with anisotropy is outlined. Polycrystal plasticity theory is used to develop the constitutive response. The hybrid approach facilitates introduction of the microscale stress in the macroscopic statement of equilibrium. Convergence of the hybrid formulation is contrasted with that of a velocity-pressure formulation. It is demonstrated that the hybrid formulation is well suited for studies where significant spatial variations in constitutive response result from having only one, or a very few, crystal orientations represented in each finite element. A simulation of channel die compression is made with one crystal per finite element. The resulting texture evolution is compared with other texture evolution models and experimental data for cold rolled aluminum. It is demonstrated that the brass texture component, observed in the experimental data, is developed through shear deformations arising from grain-to-grain interactions.
