Abstract

We report on three-dimensional (3D) microstructure visualization and finite-element method modeling of deformation in Sn-3.5Ag alloy. The 3D virtual microstructure accurately represented the alignment, aspect ratio, and distribution of the Ag3Sn second phase. The 3D microstructure-based approach is more accurate than unit cell models for simulating and understanding material behavior.
