[en] In this paper, the influence of microscopic parameters on the macroscopic behaviour of polycrystalline materials under different loading configuration is investigated. Linear elastic grains with zero thickness cohesive interfaces are considered at the microscale with in depth introduction of effective parameters. A multiscale method based on homogenisation technique is employed to bridge the scales. In order to minimize the homogenisation error, a representative volume element (RVE) of the microscopic structure is statistically determined to be used in the numerical analysis. For each loading condition of the RVE, several numerical examinations are conducted to illustrate the relationship between the microscopic parameters. Finally, the effects of microscopic critical fracture energies, maximum tensile and shear strengths of grain interfaces on the mechanical properties, i.e. stress-strain curve and yield surface at the macroscale are discussed in details. It is shown that macroscopic yield surface and stress strain curves can be used to characterise the microscopic properties.
