Dislocation

1. 1. LINE DEFECTS
2. 2. Muhammad Umair Bukhari Engr.umair.bukhari@gmail.com www.bzuiam.webs.com 03136050151
3. 3. • A line defect is also called dislocation.• A dislocation is a Crystallographic defect or irregularity, within a crystal structure.• The presence of dislocations strongly influences many of the properties of materials. The theory was originally developed by Vito Volterra in 1905.
4. 4. TYPES OF DISLOCATION• Edge Dislocation• Screw Dislocation• Mixed dislocation
5. 5. EDGE DISLOCATION• An edge dislocation is a defect where an extra half-plane of atoms is introduced mid way through the crystal.
6. 6. EDGE DISLOCATION• It distort nearby planes of atoms. When enough force is applied from one side of the crystal structure.• The extra half plane will break its existing bonds and form new bonds with its neighbor opposite of the dislocation motion.
7. 7. This is a line defect called an EDGE DISLOCATION
8. 8. Edge Dislocation• The figure shows shear force is applied on its upper and lower surfaces.• Consequently an extra half plane is introduced.• Due to this extra half plane the crystal is badly distorted.
9. 9. This step is repeated in many discreet stepsuntil the dislocation has moved entirelythrough the lattice.After all deformation, the extra half planeforms an edge that is one unit step wide.

11. 11. Screw Dislocation
12. 12. SCREW DISLOCATION• The motion of a screw dislocation is also a result of shear stress. – Motion is perpendicular to direction of stress, rather than parallel (edge).• . Term Screw for such defect is derived from the fact that lattice planes of the crystal spiral the dislocation line.
13. 13. CONTD….• The upper front portion in the following figure has been sheared by one atomic distance to the right relative to the lower front portion.• In figure t represents the dislocation line.
14. 14. t b || tb
15. 15. CONTD…….• If circuit is clock wise then it is called RIGHT HAND screw dislocation.• If circuit is anti-clock wise, then it is called LEFT HAND screw dislocation.
16. 16. Mixed Dislocation• Most dislocations can exhibit both edge and screw characteristics. These are called mixed dislocations.
17. 17. BURGERS VECTORS
18. 18. DEFINATIONThe magnitude and the direction of the slip is represented by a vector b called the Burgers vector.

20. 20. Burgers vector in edge dislocation
21. 21. Burgers vector in edge dislocation• Burger circuit forming a loop MNOPQ contains a dislocation.• If same atom to atom connection is made in a defect free crystal (fig.b) and the circuit will not close.
22. 22. Contd..• The vector required to complete the circuit is called burgers vector.• In an edge dislocation ,the burgers vector lies perpendicular to the line of dislocation.
23. 23. BURGERS VECTOR IN SCREW DISLOCATION
24. 24. BURGERS VECTOR IN SCREW DISLOCATION• Consider the atom to atom sequence MNOPQ in a crystal having a dislocation as shown in (Fig.a)
25. 25. CONTD...• Now if the same atom to atom connection is made in a defect free crystal (fig b) the circuit will not close.• The closure failure is due to absence of a dislocation.
26. 26. CONTD…..• The burgers vector in a screw dislocation is parallel to the dislocation line.
