Properties of dislocation lines in crystals with strong atomic-scale disorder
Abstract We use discrete dislocation dynamics (DDD) to study the motion of a dislocation under strong stochastic forces that may cause bending and roughening of the dislocation line on scales thatExpand
Robust atomistic calculation of dislocation line tension
The line tension Gamma of a dislocation is an important and fundamental property ubiquitous to continuum scale models of metal plasticity. However, the precise value of Gamma in a given material hasExpand
Depinning of a dislocation: the influence of long-range interactions
Abstract The theory of the depinning transition of elastic manifolds in random media provides a framework for the statistical dynamics of dislocation systems at yield. We consider the case of aExpand
Microelasticity model of random alloys. Part II: displacement and stress correlations
Abstract In this two-part article, we propose elastic models of disordered alloys to study the statistical properties of the random displacement and stress fields emerging from the randomExpand
Self-consistent experimental determination of the dislocation line tension and long-range internal stresses in deformed copper crystals by analysis of dislocation curvatures
Abstract The present TEM study on deformed copper single crystals had several objectives. In a first step, the line tensions of near-edge and near-screw dislocations were determined directly by aExpand
High energy barriers for edge dislocation motion in body-centered cubic high entropy alloys
Recent theory proposes that edge dislocations in random body-centered cubic (BCC) high entropy alloys have high barriers for motion, conveying high strengths up to high temperatures. Here, the energyExpand
Dislocation depinning transition in a dispersion-strengthened steel
Discrete dislocation dynamics simulations are used to investigate the dynamics of a driven dislocation line interacting with randomly distributed, incoherent oxide dispersoids that act as pinningExpand
Theory of strengthening in fcc high entropy alloys
High Entropy Alloys (HEAs) are a new class of random alloys having impressive strength and toughness. Here, a mechanistic, parameter-free, and predictive theory for the temperature-, composition-,Expand
Microelasticity model of random alloys. Part I: mean square displacements and stresses
Abstract In concentrated solid solutions, the random distribution of elements of different sizes induces characteristic displacement and stress fields at the root of solid solution strengthening. TheExpand
Solute strengthening in random alloys
Abstract Random solid solution alloys are a broad class of materials that are used across the entire spectrum of engineering metals, whether as stand-alone materials (e.g. Al-5xxx alloys) or as theExpand
