Fractal Dimension of Grain Boundary during Heating. Comparison between Images Analyses and Monte Carlo Simulation
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
There are few articles that mention fractal dimension in grain growth mechanism. Some authors build a simplified analytic model showing that initial fractal dimension of grain boundary has an influence on interface modification velocity. Nevertheless they postulate the relation L = c s(1−Δ) where L is the grain length, c is a constant, s is grain size and Δ the fractal dimension. The aims of this paper is to experimentally analyze by image analysis the fractal dimension of A5 aluminum sheet grain boundaries during heating and to simulate their evolution by a Monte Carlo method to validate experimental data.. It is shown by Monte-Carlo simulation and confirmed experimentally that the grain growth process decreases the fractal dimension of grain border. It can be concluded that it is very hazardous to build a model of grain growth without including the effect of grain’s morphology. The macroscopic fractal morphology of the grain structure could then be used to validate microscopic relation between Monte Carlo Steps time and real time.
