Examples of stacking faults are shown in Fig. 2.17c. For an FCC crystal, the layer
of HCP material that is introduced will elevate the total energy of the system.
Therefore, the equilibrium distance of separation of two partials reflects a balance

material. getically unfavorable atomic movements. Therefore, cross-slip of an
Offsets due to slip are revealed as straight or wavy lines (depending on the
stacking fault energy of the material) with no change in contrast noted on either
side of the slip offset. Twin bands do exhibit a change in contrast, since the

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.
