Recrystallisation module published on

Over the past few months, MeLT has been developing a new interactive e-Learning module for entitled Recrystallization.

The module introduces the collective phenomena of recovery, recrystallization and grain growth that cause work-hardened metals to soften during annealing and other high temperatures treatments. The module includes interactive simulations of these processes. It also looks how thermomechanical treatments (TMT) have been developed to produce steels of superior strength and toughness.

In addition to these core topics, sections dealing with nucleation & growth, partial dislocations, stacking fault energy and cross-slip and crystallographic texture are also provided.
