Two basically different dislocations can be identified. The edge dislocation is
defined by the edge of the extra half plane of atoms shown in Fig. 2.3. Note how
this extra half plane is wedged into the top half of the crystal. As a result, the
(a) (b) (c) FIGURE 2.9 Cross-slip of a screw dislocation XY from (a) plane A to (ft)
plane B to (c) plane A. Slip always occurs in direction of Burgers vector b. Since
many dislocations in a crystalline solid are curved like the one shown in Fig.
An extensive literature3 has developed regarding these theories, all of which
have focused on some of the dislocation interaction mechanisms described in the
previous chapter. Seeger4 and Friedel,5 for example, argued that rapid strain ...

This is one of the best textbooks on physical metallurgy. My preference is for Dieter's book, but that is because it was the textbook for my physical metallurgy course in graduate school. Hertzberg's book is more modern. Read full review
This is a great book, not only work as a text book, but also a sophisticate reference book.
