Slip transmission across grain boundaries is an essential micromechanical processes during deformation of polycrystalline materials. Slip transmission processes can be characterized based on the geometrical arrangement of active slip systems in adjacent grains and the value of the critical resolved shear stress acting on the incoming and possible outgoing slip systems. We present a Matlab toolbox which enables quantification of grain boundary slip transfer properties and comparison with experiments. Using a graphical user interface, experimental grain boundary data can be directly exported as input files for crystal plasticity finite element simulation of bicrystal experiments.
