Experiments on the distortion of metal crystals having cubic face-centred or hexagonal lattices have given very consistent results, and in every experiment the slip-plane has proved to be the crystal plane of greatest atomic density, which is subjected to the maximum shear stress. The direction of shear on this plane is represented by the line of atoms in closest formation nearest to the line of maximum slope. there is still conquerable diversity of opinion concerning the actual mechanism of…

Anomalous slip - A feature of high-purity body-centred cubic metals

The hitherto poorly understood phenomenon of anomalous slip in body-centred cubic (bcc) metal crystals, constituting a striking violation of Schmid's law of resolved shear stresses in limited ranges

The Slip, Twinning, Cohesion, Growth and Boundaries of Crystals

The nature and stability of intercrystalline boundaries are discussed and conclusions as to preferred relative orientations are illustrated by ball-bearing and bubble-raft models.

The deformation of copper and iron crystals by unidirectional abrasion

With the aim of testing further the conclusion (Wilman 1950a) that a new deformation process, rotational slip, occurs prominently when crystal surfaces are abraded unidirectionally, an approximately

Distortion of Iron and Molybdenum

THE recent communication in NATURE by Túry and Krausz1 may be helpful regarding work on the plastic distortion of metals and, in particular, on the nature of the yield point. In their letter, Fig. 1,

Mechanism of Plastic Flow in Titanium at Low and High Temperatures

An investigation was made of the mechanism of plastic flow in coarse grained specimens of both sponge and iodide titanium at low (−196°C) and high (500° and 800°C) temperatures. Deformation by slip

On the Theory of Plastic Deformation

A model for plastic deformation in soft metals, i.e. metals which are not age-hardened or severely cold-worked, is given. It is based on the assumption that in real crystals there is always a number

Effects of Temperature on the Deformation of Beta Brass

Measurements of impact hardness of β-brass are reported for a wide range of temperatures. Abrupt softening is observed when temperatures are raised above 425°C, accompanied by abrupt widening of
