From dislocation motion to an additive velocity gradient decomposition, and some simple models of dislocation dynamics


<p>A mathematical theory of time-dependent dislocation mechanics of unrestricted geometric and material nonlinearity is reviewed. Within a ‘small deformation’ setting, a suite of simplified, but interesting, models, namely a nonlocal Ginzburg Landau, a nonlocal level set, and a nonlocal generalized Burgers equation are derived. In the finite deformation setting, it is shown that an additive decomposition of the total velocity gradient into elastic and plastic parts emerges naturally from a micromechanical starting point that involves no notion of plastic deformation but only the elastic distortion, material velocity, dislocation density and the dislocation velocity. Moreover, a plastic spin tensor emerges naturally as well.</p
