Effect of grain boundary energy anisotropy on highly-textured grain structures studied by phase field simulations


Two-dimensional phase field simulations were performed of grain growth in highly textured materials with equal fractions of 2 texture components, denoted as α and β grains, and assuming 2 values of the grain boundary energies, namely σlow for the boundaries between grains of a different texture component and σhigh for boundaries between grains of a similar… (More)
