The Stochastic Nature of Deformation Twinning: Application to HCP Materials

Reference work entry


Deformation twinning is an important mode of plastic deformation in hexagonal close-packed (HCP) materials. Experimental observations indicate that these twins occur heterogeneously across the polycrystalline microstructure during deformation. The variation is too substantial to be authentically represented by average values, advocating the use of statistical analyses and stochastic models in the studies of HCP material deformation response. This chapter reviews recent efforts to explain the origin of the stochastic nature of twinning and to analyze and simulate deformation twinning in HCP materials from this perspective.
