Dynamic recrystallization in adiabatic shear banding: an entropic, effective-temperature model

Charles Lieou
EES-17/CNLS

Dynamic recrystallization (DRX) is often observed in conjunction with adiabatic shear banding (ASB) in polycrystalline materials. The recrystallized nanograins in the shear band have few dislocations compared to the material outside of the shear band. We reformulate the recently developed Langer-Bouchbinder-Lookman (LBL) continuum theory of polycrystalline plasticity and include the creation of grain boundaries. While the shear-banding instability emerges because thermal heating is faster than heat dissipation, recrystallization is interpreted as an entropic effect arising from the competition between dislocation creation and grain boundary formation. We show that our theory closely matches recent results in sheared ultrafine-grained titanium. The theory thus provides a thermodynamically consistent way to systematically describe the formation of shear bands and recrystallized grains therein.
