Effects of grain-to-grain interactions on hear strain localization in Al-Cu-Li rolled sheets

Abstract : Crystal plasticity finite element simulations of tensile tests on thin polycrys-talline samples with grain orientations representative of the microstructure in Al-Cu-Li rolled sheets are carried out to study the influence of grain-to-grain interactions on plastic strain localization. Anisotropic work-hardening and rate-sensitivity of the material behavior are assumed. The grains are modeled as thin platelets in the through-thickness direction, elongated in the rolling and transverse directions. The only distinctive feature of the present simulations with respect to standard crystal plasticity calculations is the enforcement of tangential continuity conditions on the elastic and plastic distortion rates along grain boundaries, which introduces grain-to-grain interactions and renders the simulations nonlocal. Whereas standard crystal plasticity calculations do not predict any significant plastic strain pattern, slanted shear bands spontaneously emerge throughout the sample in the simulations involving tangential continuity, in agreement with experimental observations. Also in agreement with experimental data, shear banding is delayed when the tensile axis shifts from rolling to transverse direction, and the trend to shear banding is enhanced when grain thickness is decreased, particularly in loading along the rolling direction.
