Dislocations and their role in plastic deformation

What are dislocations l.jpg
What are dislocations?

  • Dislocations are line defects that exist in metals

  • There are two types of dislocations: edge and screw

  • The symbol for a dislocation is

  • The dislocation density in annealed metals is normally r = 106/cm2

Dislocation motionplastic deformation

Note: Dislocations normally move under a shear stress

Modes of deformation l.jpg
Modes of deformation

  • Slip

  • Twinning

  • Shear band formation

Slide9 l.jpg

  • Dislocations move on a certain crystallographic plane: slip plane

  • Dislocations move in a certain crystallographic direction: slip direction

  • The combination of slip direction and slip plane is called a slip system

Slide10 l.jpg

  • Slip planes are normally close-packed planes

  • Slip directions are normally close-packed directions

Recall for fcc close-packed planes are {111}

Close-packed directions are <110>

Dislocation interaction l.jpg
Dislocation interaction









Note: More positive-positive interactions in reality

Positive positive dislocation interaction l.jpg
Positive-positive dislocation interaction

  • Results in more stress to move dislocations (or cause plastic deformation):called work hardening

  • This type of interaction also leads to dislocation multiplication which leads to more interactions and more work hardening

Twinning l.jpg

  • Common in hcp and bcc structures

  • Limited deformation but help in plastic deformation in hcp and bcc crystals

  • Occurs on specific twinning planes and twinning directions

Shear band formation l.jpg
Shear band formation

  • Limited non-homogeneous deformation

  • Very large localized strain e~1 or 100%

  • Occurs especially under high strain rates

  • Mechanism of deformation still unclear

Strengthening methods

Cold working l.jpg
Cold working

  • Deformation at temperatures below 0.4 Tm

  • Dislocation density increases from 106/cm2 to 1010-12/cm2

  • High dislocation density results in a large number of dislocation interactions which results in high strength and hardness

Solid solution strengthening l.jpg
Solid solution strengthening

  • Interaction between stress fields of alloy atoms and dislocations

  • This is the purpose of alloying

Grain size refinement l.jpg
Grain size refinement

  • Small grains result in higher strength

  • Small grains is equivalent to a large number of grain boundaries in the same volume

  • Grain boundaries act as barriers to dislocation motion

Mechanism l.jpg

Strength is inversely proportional to grain size

s = s0 + kyd-1/2

Hall-Petch equation

Smaller grains have more boundary area and hence more

barriers to dislocation motion

Precipitation hardening l.jpg
Precipitation hardening

  • Precipitates are second-phase particles

  • Hard precipitates act as barriers to dislocation motion

  • Applicable only to some alloy systems
