We study the dynamics of an intriguing crossover from a chaotic to a power-law state as a function of strain rate within the context of a recently introduced model that reproduces the crossover. While the chaotic regime has a small set of positive Lyapunov exponents, interestingly, the scaling regime has a power-law distribution of null exponents which also exhibits a power law. The slow-manifold analysis of the model shows that while a large proportion of dislocations are pinned in the chaotic… Expand

Dynamical approach to the spatiotemporal aspects of the Portevin-Le Chatelier effect: chaos, turbulence, and band propagation.
The analysis of experimental time series reports an intriguing dynamical crossover from a low-dimensional chaotic state at medium strain rates to an infinite-dimensional power-law state of stress drops at high strain rates, which is characterized by studying the distribution of the Lyapunov exponents as a function of the strain rate.

Projecting low-dimensional chaos from spatiotemporal dynamics in a model for plastic instability.
It is shown that the stress-strain signals at low applied strain rates corresponding to spatially uncorrelated dislocation bands exhibit features of low-dimensional chaos, and the model equations are spatiotemporally chaotic. Expand

This work addresses the issue of time scales and its connection to the negative strain rate sensitivity of the flow stress within the framework of a model for the jerky flow, and shows that the nature of the relaxational oscillations is a result of the atypical bent geometry of the slow manifold.
