Dislocation dynamics and instability

23 October 2009
Dislocation channel-veins and Persist Slip Band (PSB) structures are characteristic configurations in material science. To find out the formation of these structures, the law of motion of a single dislocation should be first examined. Analogous to the local expansion in electromagnetism, the self induced stress is obtained. Then combining the empirical observations, we give a smooth mobility law of a single dislocation. The stability analysis is carried our asymptotically based on the methodology in superconducting vortices. Then numerical results are presented to validate linear stability analysis. Finally, based on the evidence given by the linear stability analysis, numerical experiments on the non-linear evolution are carried out.
