What tools are used for the preparation of grain boundary models?

If you are looking for generating synthesized microstructures for using it in Phase-Field simulation, the best choice is Dream 3D, where you can control the distribution of grains and their ...

What does capital sigma followed by an integer (Σn) mean in the context of grain boundaries?

The $\Sigma$ values represent the volume of the Coincident Site Lattice (CSL) of the grain boundary in terms of the volume of the unit cell of the crystal. In general, grain boundaries with higher ...

What tools are used for the preparation of grain boundary models?

Alone Programmer's answer already mentions ways to generate polycrystalline microstructure. To add to that, it is possible to generate models of bi-crystals to analyse particular grain boundaries ...

What tools are used for the preparation of grain boundary models?

In 2008 I wrote a Python script to generate bicrystal models in a PBC box. Since the boundary is periodic (due to PBC), it's always a coincidence site lattice (CSL) boundary. The script is in ...

What kind of information can be extracted from alloy microstructure images converted to Fourier space?

General Info As far as I understand you're taking a Fourier Transform of an image. In your case, that image corresponds to that of a microstructure alloy. So basically in 2D-Fourier transforms we are ...
