Abstract

We demonstrate the importance of anisotropic interface properties in microstructure evolution by comparing computed evolved microstructures to final experimental microstructures of 5170 grains in 19 thin aluminum foil samples. This is the first time that a direct experimental validation of simulation has been performed at the level of individual grains. We observe that simulated microstructures using curvature-driven grain boundary motion and anisotropic interface properties agree well with experimentally evolved microstructures, whereas agreement is poor when isotropic properties are used.
