Earlier work on the effects of insoluble second phase particles on grain growth is extended to investigate the role of particular shape. For grain growth in the presence of periodic or randomly placed parallel fibers and whiskers, the kinetics of grain growth, the temporal evolution of the microstructure, and pinned grain size are studied as a function of the particle aspect ratio and volume fraction. An excellent agreement between the simulated microstructures and the predictions of strong pinning theories is found.
