Stress singularities at grain triple junctions are evaluated for various asymmetric grain boundary configurations and random orientations of cubic and orthotropic grains. The analysis is limited to elastic plane-strain deformation and carried out using the Eshelby-Stroh formalism for anisotropic elasticity. For both the cubic and orthotropic grains, the most singular configuration corresponds to the fully symmetric case with grain boundaries 120 deg apart, and with symmetric orientations of the material axes. The magnitude of the singularities are obtained for several engineering polycrystals.
