Clayton First semester 2003 (Day)
Clayton First semester 2004 (Day)

Synopsis: Deformation of single crystals: geometry of slip. Deformation of polycrystals: deformation geometry, deformation textures, determination of preferred orientation, effects of crystal structure. Dislocation dynamics: interactions of dislocations, yield point phenomena, effects of temperature and strain rate, theories of work hardening. Strengthening mechanisms: theories of obstacle hardening. Inhomogeneity of plastic deformation and its consequences. The tensile test: standards for testing, necking and plastic instability, constitutive laws for plastic deformation.
