Module summary

This course presents advanced concepts in the mechanical behavior of materials with a focus on dislocations in structural metals, including Shockley partial dislocations, Frank partial dislocations and Lomer/Cottrell dislocations. The course discusses the elastic properties of dislocations, their motion in crystal lattices and their interaction with crystallographic and microstructural features. The influence of dislocations on material, mechanical and fracture properties is emphasized. Mechanisms for the origin and multiplication of dislocations are also studied with an overview on the characterization methods, e.g. transmission electron microscopy, employed to analyze them
