A procedure for identifying the plastic behaviour of single crystals from the local response of polycrystals

Abstract : The overall and local tensile responses of an α iron multicrystalline sample are investigated in order to derive the plastic constitutive equations for the constituent single crystals. The macroscopic stress–strain curve and some statistical characteristics of the strain field measured on the sample surface are compared with their simulated counterparts. The optimal values of the material parameters of four types of hardening laws are derived by a minimization procedure. The best results are obtained with a nonlinear anisotropic law which uses the dislocation densities on the slip systems. This procedure is then validated on a fine-grained polycrystalline sample of a similar material by using the measured displacement field on the edge of a selected area as boundary conditions for finite element method (FEM) computation. The resulting optimal material parameters for the single crystal are found to be consistent with the values available in the literature, and the whole simulated strain fields as well as the evolution of the crystallographic texture, is compared satisfactorily with the experimental data.
