In this study, a three-dimensional finite element formulation for polycrystalline plasticity model based on the homogenization method has been presented. The homogenization method is one of the useful procedures, which can evaluate the homogenized macroscopic material properties with a periodical microstructure, so-called a unit cell. The present study focuses on hexagonal metals such as titanium or magnesium. An assessment of flow stress by the presented method is conducted and it is clarified how the method can reproduce the behavior of hexagonal metal.
