Component performance and processing:

Vulture is a code that interfaces the effective medium crystal plasticity code, VPSC, with finite element frameworks. This allows performing component-level finite element simulations using physically based material models. Each element in the finite element mesh solves for the texture-dependent crystallographic material response using VPSC and local boundary conditions. This tool can be used to assess both material performance and mechanically driven manufacturing of components [7,8]. The hierarchal modeling framework has been used with success to provide guidance to complex material processing techniques such as accumulative roll bonding.
