GBgeom: a computer program for visualizing texture parameters and simulating grain boundary structures in cubic crystals

T. Karthikeyan and S. Saroja

Abstract: GBgeom is a computer graphics program developed for unraveling the relations between different texture parameters and for simulating the basic unrelaxed atomic structures at grain boundary planes in body- and face-centered cubic crystalline materials. It could be a useful tool to materials researchers for interpreting texture data and for deciphering the possible ordered structures at grain boundaries. The software has been developed using the Visual C++ language, and OpenGL routines have been used for rendering various outputs and implementing an intuitive user interface.

Keywords: visualization; simulation; grain boundaries; texture; cubic crystals; computer programs.
