Review: Deformed and recrystallized structures in FCC materials
The evolution in the field of recrystallization related studies in FCC metals is summarized in this paper. The process of recrystallization which is initiated by stored energy is provided by dislocations. However, dislocations are introduced during the process of deformation, hence both aspects are covered, as well as the kinetics of recrystallization is well elaborated. The key features of recrystallization: role of misorientations; deformation and recrystallization textures; are described and most importantly recent issues on recrystallization of FCC metals are documented in this paper. The final remarks contain the future aspects of studies in the field of recrystallization of materials with FCC crystal structure.
