A simple computer model is proposed to simulate the microstructural evolution of Al-4 wt% Cu lines. The model includes the coarsening and pinning of Al2Cu precipitates which occur during normal grain growth. This model is used to explore how Cu-rich precipitates evolve during normal grain growth, and how they affect the evolution of grain structure from polycrystalline to bamboo.
