In the past twenty years, new experimental approaches, improved models and progress in simulation techniques brought new insights into long-standing issues concerning dislocation-based plasticity in crystalline materials. During this period, three-dimensional dislocation dynamics simulationsappeared and reached maturity. Their objectives are to unravel the relation between individual and collective dislocation processes at the mesoscale, to establish connections with atom-scale studies of dislocation core properties and to bridge, in combination with modelling, the gap between defectproperties and phenomenological continuum models for plastic flow. Dislocation dynamics simulations are becoming accessible to a wide range of users. This book presents to students and researchers in materials science and mechanical engineering a comprehensive coverage of the physical body of knowledge on which they are based. It includes classical studies, whichare too often ignored, recent experimental and theoretical advances, as well as a discussion of selected applications on various topics.
Ladislas Kubin received his Engineering Diploma from Ecole Centrale Paris in 1966 and his Doctorate in Physical Sciences from Orsay University (Solid State Physics Laboratory) in 1971. Since 1968, he held a full-time research position at CNRS, where he is now Director of Research Emeritus. His research was performed in several laborat...

Editorial Reviews

"This book is a masterful introduction to the physics of plasticity at the mesoscale by one of the pioneers of the dynamics of dislocations in three dimensions. The text is enriched enormously by Kubin's personal familiarity with the phenomenology of dislocations and plasticity in crystals." --Adrian P. Sutton, Imperial College London
