some qustions of recrystallisation
Dear everyone
I am new to MICRESS,this is my first post here
I want to do recrystallisation with random(The fifth in the examplesReX_random),then i had got the Initial microstructure using a random method.There are 4 types grains with numbers 5 5 4 5,They have different energies as in the examples.there are 2 types of seedsinterface and region
as in the examples.Then i run the program. here is my .in file.

and here are the pictures of ReX_random_rex.
In picture t=0,There are two color grain boundaries, red and blue. The nuclei formed on the red grain boundary will not disappear, but it grows very slowly. The nuclei formed on the blue grain boundary and in the region will disappear, and finally only the grain boundary intersection can be nucleated and grown (picture t=14)
What should I do to stop the disappearance of all seeds, or to prevent the formation of red grain boundaries and its nucleation, I can accept pictures without red grain boundaries and nucleation (t=14). Even the seeds in the interface and region will disappear.
My english is a little poor,Excuse me for my poor English.I don't know if I explained my problem clearly. If not, please contact me.
I am new to MICRESS,this is my first post here
I want to do recrystallisation with random(The fifth in the examplesReX_random),then i had got the Initial microstructure using a random method.There are 4 types grains with numbers 5 5 4 5,They have different energies as in the examples.there are 2 types of seedsinterface and region
as in the examples.Then i run the program. here is my .in file.

and here are the pictures of ReX_random_rex.
In picture t=0,There are two color grain boundaries, red and blue. The nuclei formed on the red grain boundary will not disappear, but it grows very slowly. The nuclei formed on the blue grain boundary and in the region will disappear, and finally only the grain boundary intersection can be nucleated and grown (picture t=14)
What should I do to stop the disappearance of all seeds, or to prevent the formation of red grain boundaries and its nucleation, I can accept pictures without red grain boundaries and nucleation (t=14). Even the seeds in the interface and region will disappear.
My english is a little poor,Excuse me for my poor English.I don't know if I explained my problem clearly. If not, please contact me.
Re: some qustions of recrystallisation
Dear sxxxf,
Welcome to the MICRESS Forum!
I think, the most relevant difference between your input file and the T037_ReX_random_dri.txt (that is the name in the new 6.4 version...) standard example is that you strongly reduced the recrystallisation energy. This already points to the most probable reason why it behaves differently: For growing properly, the seeds need to overcome the driving force which comes from curvature. This in your case turns out to be totally impossible for bulk nucleation, and is generally somewhat easier at interfaces, especially for the red lowangle boundaries: Here, due to the parentrelation nucleation with angles below 15°, the boundaries between the new seeds and the parent grain will always be lowangle bounadries, and thus the interface energy is reduced by a factor of 0.2 (according to the factor misorientation model). This allows the seeds to grow despite of the low recrystallisation energy.
The lower recrystallisation energies also explain the much slower growth of the 'successful' seeds in your case.
Thus, the solution is either to assume the recrystallisation energies to be higher (like in T037_ReX_random_dri.txt), or you assume the interface energies to be generally smaller. Alternatively, you also could increase the initial radius of the seeds, which would also help to overcome the curvature undercooling.

Re: some qustions of recrystallisation
Dear Ferguson,
Welcome to the MICRESS forum!
The T037_ReX_random_dri.txt training example is not focussing on a specific material. It just serves as a template for own work on recrystallisation. Linking to a specific material would require taking the specific material parameters for this material, either from literature or by calibration with experimental data.
Up to now we typically treated metallic materials like steels. To be honest, I personally have no idea whether recrystallisation in ceramics would follow similar rules, i.e. whether the models implemented in MICRESS would be valid  maybe, someone else can answer this question...

Re: some qustions of recrystallisation
Dear Brend
I have a question
in case of REX considering for a single phase full martensitic steel (and using Energy thereshold for REX in phase data description, higher amount for min and max REX energy in input grain section and considering 0 as max and min of REX energy plus critical energy for REX as energy threshold in the section of seed description) I can see recrystallization in all of grains...
I want to leave some grains as nonREX ones
what should I do? maybe introduce local_dislocations...right?
as I have martensitic lathes in the shape of elliptical grains and willing to have a combination of REX and non REX grains in designed fraction....
so what is your opinion about the term of fix direction in this command?
# Determination of nuclei orientations?
# Options: random fix fix_direction parent_relation
ix_direction
could it be useful?

Re: some qustions of recrystallisation
Hi Kamran,
I am not sure whether I understand the idea behind your setup. Typically, if you have several grains of the same phase, the stored energy in each grain will be different. This allows you selecting those grains where recrystallization can start by a using a critical stored energy for nucleation.
However, the new recrystallized grains probably will not only grow inside those grains where they nucleate, but also (even if more slowly) even into those with a value of the stored energy which is less than the critical one for nucleation.
I can imagine three reasons why you should nevertheless get an only partly recrystallized microstructure:
1.) The process is stopped before complete recrystallisation is reached (e.g. by cooling to room temperature), leaving preferentially those grains unrecrystallized which have a lower stored energy.
2.) There is an effect of misorientation which does not allow recrystallized grains to enter into grains with too much different orientation (i.e. high angle grain boundaries have a lower interface mobility). This you can achieve by using the misorientation models in MICRESS.
3.) There may be pinning by particles which would create a threshold reXenergy needed for growth.
I am unsure how your proposal of fixed orientations enter into these considerations. Please keep in mind that orientation and shape are not linked in any way.
Furthermore, I have no knowledge about specialities of martensite behaviour with respect to recrystallisation...

Re: some qustions of recrystallisation
Dear Brend
thank you for your prompt reply
maybe I should clarify my work at first:
actually, I want to simulate flash annealing at 100K/s heating rate. so, I have single phase cold rolled martensitic microstructure, I have consider martensite as supper saturated ferrite with elliptical shape in grain nucleation, my defined grain size should be small enough as our experimental work, I mean 0.5 in X direction and 0.1 in Z direction, so I should select grid and spacing as follow:
# Geometry
# 
# Grid size?
# (for 2D calculations: CellsY=1, for 1D calculations: CellsX=1, CellsY=1)
# Cells in Xdirection (CellsX):
500
# Cells in Ydirection (CellsY):
1
# Cells in Zdirection (CellsZ):
500
# Cell dimension (grid spacing in micrometers):
# (optionally followed by rescaling factor for the output in the form of '3/4')
0.002
I know it is too fine to define, I should tackle it as actual work, so I have select interface thk as 3 cells

as you know in flash heating there is coincide between REX and austenite reversion, so
1) I need to have some of first martensite grains as nonREX elliptical shape, I want to leave some grains as nonREX and only willing to have partially REX grains
I changed min and max energy also energy threshold for REX to affect on microstructure and have partial REX, but always all of grains recrystallized simultaneously,
2) on the other hand, in contrary with very fine austenite grain size as 0.005 or even 0.00 in other simulation, I have very very fast austenite growth
I am sure about my interface energy or mobility, otherwise it affect by heating rate
could yo please provide me some information to have it?
thank you for your prompt reply
maybe I should clarify my work at first:
actually, I want to simulate flash annealing at 100K/s heating rate. so, I have single phase cold rolled martensitic microstructure, I have consider martensite as supper saturated ferrite with elliptical shape in grain nucleation, my defined grain size should be small enough as our experimental work, I mean 0.5 in X direction and 0.1 in Z direction, so I should select grid and spacing as follow:
# Geometry
# 
# Grid size?
# (for 2D calculations: CellsY=1, for 1D calculations: CellsX=1, CellsY=1)
# Cells in Xdirection (CellsX):
500
# Cells in Ydirection (CellsY):
1
# Cells in Zdirection (CellsZ):
500
# Cell dimension (grid spacing in micrometers):
# (optionally followed by rescaling factor for the output in the form of '3/4')
0.002
I know it is too fine to define, I should tackle it as actual work, so I have select interface thk as 3 cells
on the other hand, I defined phase 1 and its REX situation as follow:
# Data for phase 1:

Re: some qustions of recrystallisation
Dear Kamran,
To be honest, the information you provide confuses me! You say, recrystallisation of martensite is always connected with transformation to austenite. This means that we don't speak about normal recrystallisation but about a phase transformation. However, the data for initial grains and nucleation you show don't include a second phase (=austenite). Furthermore, the nucleation type you show does not present nucleation of recrystallized grains but only a redefinition of the reXenergy to the threshold value of 12 J/cm^{3}  or am I overlooking something?
Bernd

Re: some qustions of recrystallisation
Dear Brend
my work is phase transformation through austenite reversion from an initial full martensitic microstructue in the flash heating...
by applying flash heating around 100 K/s we have overlap between post started recrystallization and austenite reversion (which can form above Ac1)
it is nature of rapid heating, because can postpone the recrystallization start temp.
so, I need to know how can I define input data to have partially REX grains+some grains totally nonREX+austenite reversion?
I know before about austenite reversion during this flash annealing, so I need to define data to have other ones in the field of recrystallization.
yes, by changing energy for REX and min or max or threshold or critical values for that I have redefinition for that and happening of REX just for all grains which is not my desired objective.
using other ways, like local dislocation model needs further calculation with other software to define as input data, so I would rather to know about how can I define current model for energy base grains to have partially REX and non REX grains?
your further suggestion and advices are totally welcome
