A high resolution electron backscatter diffraction study of heterogeneous deformation in polycrystal copper

Abstract:

Understanding the plastic deformation mechanisms in polycrystals is a long-standing fundamental problem and its improvement has significant potential impact on the increase in materials resistance to typical failure modes such as fatigue cracking and stress corrosion cracking and hence the increase in the materials strength. However many deformation models are yet to be validated as quantitative experimental results at mesoscale to correlate dislocations and microstructure features are lim...
