The production of aluminium foils of age hardenable aluminium alloys include homogenization, hot rolling, cold rolling and heat treatments. Starting with the microstructure after homogenziation followed by hot rolling, the evolution of the grain and subgrain structure during cold rolling as well as recovery and static recrystallization during the subsequent continuous heat treatments will be described for aluminium alloys by using both, continuous and discrete models. The objective of this project is to develop a model for the simulation of the microstructure evolution during cold rolling and subsequent heat treatment to couple it with the already developed models for the previous steps along the production chain.
