Viewpoint on the Formation and Evolution of Annealing Twins During Thermomechanical Processing of FCC Metals and Alloys

Abstract : The question of the formation mechanism of annealing twins in face-centered cubic metals and alloys, which is still not resolved in spite of the fact that the existence of these defects is known for long, is addressed in this paper. The different mechanisms proposed through the years are reviewed. Most of them focus on coherent twin boundaries. However, incoherent twin boundaries are very frequent as well, notably in recrystallized microstructures and would definitely deserve more specific attention. Twin topologies are so much different after recrystallization and after grain growth that distinct names would be better suited than the general term of annealing twins. Because twins are at the core of most grain boundary engineering approaches, the mechanisms by which an interconnected network of twin and related boundaries can be formed are discussed, in the light of the current knowledge on annealing twin formation mechanisms. Finally, the state of the art of mesoscopic models and simulations able to account for twin boundaries is presented. Accounting for twins is a requirement since they not only play a role in microstructure evolution upon thermomechanical processing but also affect the in-service material behavior, positively or negatively depending on the involved properties.
