Please show all work necessary to arrive at your answers. Slide under my office door (345 Fontana). 1. Construction of a Burgers circuit Using the SF /RH (note the corrected typo in green) rule discussed in class, determine the Burgers vector and line sense of the dislocation in the figure below (Figure 4.7 in McClintock and Argon). As part of your answer, submit a copy of the figure showing your circuit. We choose the dislocation line direction ξ to point out of the plane of the paper and then construct a right-handed circuit as shown above. The circuit reveals a Burgers vector b pointing from left to right. A square or other circuit reveals the same b . The only requirement is that the circuit would be closed in a perfect crystal. 2. Independent slip systems In class, we derived an expression for the average plastic strain produced when a dislocation with slip plane normal n and Burgers vector b slips an area A s of a crystal with volume V. A fcc crystal with {111} type slip planes and <110> slip directions has 12 distinct slip systems (4 {111} slip planes and 3 <110> slip directions in each plane). A set of slip systems is said to be independent when the plastic strain

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
