Om Physical Basis of Plasticity in Solids
This book introduces the physical mechanism of the plastic deformation of solids, which relies essentially on the occurrence and motion of dislocations. These are linear defects, specific of crystalline solids whose motion under external stresses explains the relative ease by which solids (metals in particular) can be deformed in order to give them desired shapes. The objective is to introduce the topic to undergraduate students, restricting to the main ideas and showing their relevance in interpreting phenomena well known to everyone (e.g. why are certain metals harder than others?), and finally training the students in the practice of calculating the simplest properties of dislocations.Contents:IntroductionThe Structure of Crystalline SolidsMechanics of Deformable SolidsVacancies, an Example of Point Defects in CrystalsThe Geometry of DislocationsStrain Field of DislocationsInteractions with the LatticeMicroscopic Mechanism of PlasticityReadership: Undergraduate and graduate students in materials science, condensed matter physics and mechanics.
