Understanding the fundamental plastic behavior of polycrystalline metals using computational models requires physically-based, multi-scale materials models and quantitative validation with experiments. In addition, accurate representations of microstructures are critical in investigating process-structure-property (PSP) linkages and materials variability in performance. In this work, a meso-scale micromechanical model informed from atomistic simulations is used to predict plastic deformations of single-, multi- and poly-crystalline metals. Crystal plasticity-finite element (CP-FE) model is parameterized from molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and single crystal experiments, and used to investigate the effects of microstructural variability in local and global stress-strain responses. Heterogeneous deformations of BCC metals are quantitatively compared with various experiments. In addition, the results are used to parameterize continuum models of BCC metals and predict dynamic behaviors under extreme conditions. This framework provides an efficient and direct link from the fundamental dislocation physics to the continuum-scale plastic deformation of polycrystalline metals.
