Analyse des mécanismes de recristallisation statique du tantale déformé à froid pour une modélisation en champ moyen

Abstract : This study aims at predicting the microstructural evolution of pure tantalum during annealing according the initial microstructural state. Static recovery and discontinuous recrystallization as well as grain growth are described using a mean-field model requiring an appropriate description of the microstructure, using both equivalent dislocation densities and grain sizes distributions. The average equivalent dislocation density can be assessed from Vickers microhardness measurements. The calibration of such a relation between microhardness and dislocation density involves the use of a dislocation density-based constitutive law. Microstructural evolutions during annealing have been observed and control parameters of these phenomena have been determined using original tests such as in situ observation of the recrystallization process or the use of strain gradient samples to assess the critical dislocation density for the onset of recrystallization. More classical tests have been carried out to get recrystallization kinetics in the range 1000-1100°C for different initial microstructures. Simulations of annealing using the mean-field model adapted for tantalum match the experimental evolution of both recrystallized fraction and recrystallized grain size, in either weakly deformed or severely deformed and fragmented microstructures. On the other hand, the model needs to be further adapted for intermediate microstructures, with both a more elaborate description of the initial microstructure and of the nucleation stage of the recrystallized grains. It will then be suitable to predict evolutions of any initial tantalum microstructure during annealing.
