Abstract:

This research in support of the Air Force Research Laboratory Materials and Manufacturing Directorate was conducted at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio from 7 August 2006 through 8 August 2007. Dislocation mobility and stability in nanocrystals and electronic materials are influenced by the material composition and interface conditions. Its mobility and stability then affect the mechanical behaviors of the composites. In the JMPS paper, we first address, in detail, the problem of a screw dislocation located in an annular coating layer which is imperfectly bonded to the inner circular inhomogeneity and to the outer unbounded matrix. Both the inhomogeneity-coating interface and coating-matrix interface are modeled by a linear spring with vanishing thickness to account for the possible damage occurring on the interface. An analytic solution in series form is derived by means of complex variable method, with all the unknown constants being determined explicitly. The solution is then applied to the study of the dislocation mobility and stability due to its interaction with the two imperfect interfaces.
