Summary

A physical model is provided to predict some aspects of the kinetics of the recrystallization process after cold deformation. The model takes into account the geometry of the grain and the position of nucleation sites in deformed grain structures. The selected geometry is a regular tetrakaidecahedron, combining topological features of a random Voronoi distribution with the advantages of single-grain calculations. The influence of the grain geometry resulting from various degrees of deformation, the position of the nuclei and the nucleus density on the transformation kinetics are discussed.
