Abnormal Grain Growth: Computer Simulation
The data on nucleation and necessary conditions for abnormal grain growth obtained by computer modelling are presented. Microstructure in the model description of grain growth is characterized by the
Abnormal Grain Growth in Metals
Grain growth may occur in two forms, normal grain growth, characterized by a constant grain size distribution during growth, and abnormal grain growth, where one or more abnormally large grains may
Abnormal grain growth in a medium-carbon microalloyed steel
An experimental study on the grain growth of a medium-carbon V-Ti microalloyed steel with two levels of AIN has been carried out. A system to study grain-size distributions in order to detect the
Extension of Gladman's model for abnormal grain growth
We present a first principles model for abnormal grain growth in either two or three dimensions that has the virtue of simplicity on the one hand and of close agreement with recent computer
Simulation of the effect of anisotropic grain boundary mobility and energy on abnormal grain growth
Abnormal grain growth (AGG) can take place when the grain boundaries of a given grain have the growth advantage exclusively over those of the other grains. The growth advantage can be provided either
A unified theory of grain growth in polycrystalline materials
Grain growth is a ubiquitous and fundamental phenomenon observed in the cellular structures with the grain assembly separated by a network of grain boundaries, including metals and ceramics. However,

Two‐Dimensional Motion of Idealized Grain Boundaries
To represent ideal grain boundary motion in two dimensions, a rule of motion of plane curves is considered whereby any given point of a curve moves toward its center of curvature with a speed that is
