Crystalline Structure Structure in which atoms are located at regular and recurring positions in three dimensions Basic geometric grouping of atoms that is repeated called: Pattern may be replicated millions of times within a given crystal Characteristic structure of virtually all metals, as well as many ceramics and some polymers

Three Crystal Structures in Metals 1. Body-centered cubic (BCC) e.g. Chromium, Iron, Molybdenum, Tungsten 1. Face centered cubic (FCC) e.g. Aluminum, Copper, Gold, Lead, Silver, Nickel 1. Hexagonal close-packed (HCP) e.g. Magnesium, Titanium, Zinc How many atoms in each unit cell?

Imperfections (Defects) in Crystals Imperfections often arise due to inability of solidifying material to continue replication of unit cell, e.g., grain boundaries in metals Imperfections can also be introduced purposely; e.g., addition of alloying ingredient in metal Types of defects: 1. Point defects 2. Line defects 3. Surface defects
Background image of page 4
Point Defects Imperfections in crystal structure involving either a single atom or a few number of atoms Figure 2.9 Point defects: (a) vacancy, (b) ion‑pair vacancy, (c) interstitialcy, (d) displaced ion (also known as a Frenkel Defect).

Line Defects Connected group of point defects that forms a line in the lattice structure. Examples: Extra plane of atoms: dislocation Spiral within the lattice: dislocation
Background image of page 6
Surface Defects Imperfections that extend in two directions to form a boundary Examples: External: the surface of a crystalline object is an interruption in the lattice structure Internal surface interruptions:

Elastic Strain When a crystal experiences a gradually increasing stress, it first deforms elastically If force is removed lattice structure its original shape
Background image of page 8
Plastic Strain If stress is higher than forces holding atoms in their lattice positions, a shape change occurs

Effect of Dislocations on Strain In the series of diagrams, the movement of the dislocation allows deformation to occur under a stress than in a perfect lattice Figure 2.12 Effect of dislocations in the lattice structure under stress

Slip on a Macroscopic Scale Slip occurs many times over throughout the metal when subjected to a deforming load, thus causing it to exhibit its macroscopic behavior in the stress-strain relationship Dislocations are a good‑news‑bad‑news situation Good news in manufacturing – the metal is easier to form Bad news in design – the metal is not as strong as the designer would like HCP has the fewest slip directions (thus usually has ductility), then FCC, and BCC has the most.
