(a) (upper left) and (b) (upper right). Dislocation velocity at each average dislocation position, for T=300 K (Fig. 3(a)) and for T=100 K (Fig. 3(b)). (c) (lower left) and (d) (lower right). Average dislocation position at each time, for T=300 K (Fig. 3(d)) and for T=100 K (Fig. 3(d)).
Grahic Jump Location
Stress dependence of the average dislocation velocity at two different temperatures
Grahic Jump Location
Shockley partials gliding on (1̄11̄) toward a truncated SFT viewed from the outside of Thomson’s tetrahedron. Partials above SFT in the figure is referred as an unlike case, and ones below the SFT as alike case.
Grahic Jump Location
System energy for Shockley partials gliding on (1̄11̄) planes for unlike cases. d is the interval between each glide plane and BCD plane of the SFT. The energy is converted per vacancy.
Grahic Jump Location
Dislocation pile-ups on (1̄11̄) plane viewed from the [1̄01] direction. AB corresponds to the stable position of glissile Shockley partial when the leading intersects AD (or AA), and AB denotes the (critical) anchoring position.
Grahic Jump Location
Activation energy with dislocations pile-ups at various planes. Curves labeled (u) corresponds to an unilike case, and others to the alike cases. The energy is converted per vacancy.
