Burgers Circuit To determine the Burgers vector… Simple, confusing, important construct Requires convention (FS/RH) Perhaps confusing because answer is not absolute, depends upon convention Important for determining reactions to applied stresses and dislocation-dislocation interactions

Burgers Circuit May be taken about 0, one, or many dislocations.
Edge, Screw, Mixed Edge – Burgers vector, b , is perpendicular to line vector Screw - Burgers vector, b , is parallel to line vector, t or ξ Mixed – Burgers vector, b , is inclined to line vector, t or ξ Can be described in terms of edge and screw components Please review text for details

b1 + b2 = b3; b3 – b4 = b5 What does this tell us about where dislocations lines can end? *** What about dislocation reactions? Continuity very important concept! often confuses students* Analogous to Kirchhoff’s law of current flow… Burgers vector of a dislocation (or collection of dislocations) is continuous Net Burgers vector equal on opposite sides of nodes b1 b2 b3 b4 b5 ?
