The multiresolution continuum theory (MRCT)  has been established to link the material’s macroscopic behaviour with its microstructural inhomogeneities. Additional kinematic variables in addition to the conventional macroscopic displacement field are added to account for microstructural deformations at multiple microscales. Metal plasticity is associated with interaction of motion of dislocations and microstructures. A Dislocation density based material model  calibrated and validated for AISI 316L at different temperatures and strain rates is used as the macroscopic constitutive equation of the MRCT element. We investigated particularly how the changing property of the microdomain with changing temperature affects the macroscopic behaviours of the material.
