Modelling crack tip plastic zones and brittle-ductile transitions

Abstract:

Plasticity at crack tips has been modelled as self-organising arrays of dislocations emitted from a source near the crack tip. The model takes into account dislocation shielding, but not blunting. For materials where dislocation motion is slow, and the friction stress is high, the modelled arrays are far from equilibrium. The brittle-ductile transition is then controlled by dislocation velocity. If dislocation motion is fast, and there is a substantial dislocation pinning stress, tau(f), the ...
