Bicrystal GUI

This GUI allows to analyze quantitatively slip transmission across grain boundaries for a single bicrystal.

The Matlab function used to run the Bicrystal GUI is : A_gui_plotGB_Bicrystal.m

This includes:

Loading Bicrystal data

It is possible to load bicrystal properties (material, phase, Euler angles of both grains, trace angle…) :
  • from the EBSD map GUI (by giving GB number and pressing the button ‘PLOT BICRYSTAL’) ;
  • from a YAML config. bicrystal (from the menu, by clicking on ‘Bicrystal, and ‘Load Bicrystal config. file’).

Distribution of all slip transmission parameters

It is possible to generate a new window, in which all values of the selected slip transmission parameter are plotted in function of selected slip families.
