Theory of crystal dislocations
Dislocations in a simple cubic lattice
The properties of dislocations are calculated by an approximate method due to Peierls. The width of a dislocation is small, displacements comparable with the interatomic distance being confined to a

If the process of diffusion in metals results simply in the interchange of pairs of atoms large strains must be set up when a new phase precipitates in an alloy. The strain energy involved is
XLI. The equilibrium of linear arrays of dislocations.
Abstract A method is given for finding the equilibrium positions of a set of like dislocations in a common slip-plane under the influence of a given applied stress. Their positions are given by the
The physics of creep
The plasticity of pure single crystals
Abstract The theory of the work-hardening curve of a pure single crystal is discussed. An outline is given of the experimental methods available for the study of the mechanism of plastic deformation
Rafting in Superalloys
The phenomenon of rafting in superalloys is described, with particular reference to modern superalloys with a high volume fraction of the particulate γ’ phase. It is shown that in the elastic regime,
