  • As an important simulation tool for describing the elastoplastic deformation of anisotropic heterogeneous materials on continuum scales, crystal plasticity finite element (CPFE) modeling can effectively predict macroscopic mechanical properties of materials, thus plays a critical role in engineering design. In the practical engineering applications, many crystalline materials work at extreme conditions such as high stress, high deformation rate, and high temperature. The anisotropic heterogeneous microstructure evolutions under such conditions are the key factors to understanding the dynamic response of materials, and it brings great opportunities and challenges for CPFE. In this paper, we firstly review the theory and model of CPFE, and then introduce the applications of this method in study of dynamic response of crystalline materials, and discuss the c
