This work uses flow stresses obtained experimentally at different strain rates and temperatures to validate flow modelling results. Flow curves of Ti6Al4V are measured via torsion experiments with a Gleeble® 3800 up to effective strains of 8. A physically based model that describes the evolutions of microstructure and the flow stress in the β-phase field was developed. A model of continuous dynamic recrystallization (CDRX) based on the work of Gourdet and Montheillet  for aluminium alloys is combined in this work with elements taken from Kocks and Mecking . The model consists of a detailed description of the microstructure, based on different dislocation density populations and grain boundaries. All these internal variables evolve according to a production and a recovery term correlated mathematically with the temperature and the strain rate. The modelled output variables besides the flow stress are the total, the interior and the wall dislocation densities as well as the subgrain and grain sizes developed by continuous dynamic recrystallization. The model describes the softening occurring during large strain deformations, which is partly produced by the formation of new high angle grain boundaries (HAGB). The fraction of HAGB was used to determine the recrystallization grade, validated with microstructural characterization.
