%X Modeling of metals deforming by twinning requires reorienting the matrix into twin orientation. In twinning models like the Predominant Twin Reorientation scheme (PTR), a threshold volume fraction is defined with an empiric equation to reorient the parent grain into the dominant twin variant. This equation contains two parameters which are first investigated in the present study, showing their effect on simulated flow stress and twin volume fraction evolution. Magnesium, with a tension and a compression twinning modes, is taken as an example to compare the expected experimental behavior and the modeled behavior. Complex deformations such as strain path change and multiple twinning are modeled with the PTR, and simulated stress, twin volume fraction and texture are correlated with the expected behavior. The PTR shows a good agreement with experiments when the twin volume fraction corresponds to the fraction of grains reoriented into twins, but limited predictability when the twinned grains are not reoriented.
