Grahic Jump Location
A mesh of rectangular elements, representing prismatic dislocation loops, covering area S upon which surface traction annulment is sought. The inset shows one of these prismatic dislocation loops.

Faces of a DD computational box uniformly meshed with square elements representing prismatic dislocation loops
Grahic Jump Location
A dislocation segment in a DD computational box reflected off of the six external box surfaces
Grahic Jump Location
Comparisons of the stresses from the current work (TK) versus the work by Maurissen and Capella (MC) for a sub-surface vertical segment. Stresses are in Pa. The segment points in the positive z-direction, has a zero y-component of b, and a length of 100b. The stresses are plotted along an axis parallel to the y-axis at a depth of 400b. The surface is 20,000b on each side and has a mesh density of 10×10 loops.
Grahic Jump Location
Same as Fig. 6 but with a surface mesh density of 30×30 loops.

Grahic Jump Location
Stress-strain diagrams from DD simulations for one operational Frank-Read source in a cubic cell that is 10,000b in side length. The source is close to the cell’s external surfaces. The continuous line correspond to no treatment of the traction-free boundary condition, and the dashed lines corresponds to an external surface mesh density of 10×10 loops, 20×20 loops, and 30×30 loops.
