Abstract Scope Orthorhombic alpha-uranium exhibits extreme deformation anisotropy, and reliably forming parts with simple symmetries requires sophisticated rolling schedules to produce plates with low in-plane texture anisotropy. We have developed a microstructure based constitutive model for uranium deformation based on polycrystal plasticity theory and a viscoplastic self-consistent (VPSC) homogenization scheme. Calibration of the constitutive model is based on compression and tensile tests for multiple orientations, strain rates, and temperatures from three wrought uranium products having three different crystallographic textures. The constitutive model captures the range of experimental stress-strain responses and predicts the microstructure evolution (texture evolution and twin fraction) measured by electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD). We incorporate the constitutive model into Abaqus finite element simulations. Using this tool, we simulate rolling operations to predict microstructure and property evolution and forming operations to examine the effects of in-plate texture anisotropy. Both of these are validated directly with rolling and forming experiments.
