When an edge dislocation is present in the lattice, the circuit does not close (Fig.
2.3). The vector needed to close the Burgers circuit (X'X) is called the Burgers
vector b of the dislocation and represents both the magnitude and direction of slip
(a) (6) (c) FIGURE 2.9 Cross-slip of a screw dislocation XY from (a) plane A to (b)
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.
Equally important are the intersections of dislocations moving on different slip
planes. Two different edge dislocation interactions are shown in Fig. 2.23. In the
first case, where the Burgers vectors of the two dislocations are at right angles,

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
