Elastic interaction of a screw dislocation with a double-coated cylinder

By Nkem Ogbonna


AbstractWe study the problem of a screw dislocation interacting with a double-coated cylindrical inclusion in a dissimilar matrix. Using an elastostatic image method, we determine the displacement field in each material phase and obtain the force of interaction between the inhomogeneity and the dislocation in the form of a rapidly convergent infinite series. Numerical examples are presented to illustrate the effect of double coating on the force of interaction. It is found that, for certain material combinations, the presence of a double-coated cylinder gives rise to two equilibrium positions of the dislocation. This result is significant as it indicates that multiple equilibrium positions are possible for multiply-coated inclusions interacting with a screw dislocation
