If the lattice parameter, a , is 0.300 nm, is the metal crystal structure FCC or BCC? HINT: Determine the length from one atom to the next in the slip direction for FCC and BCC. The Burgers vector is ( a /2)* in FCC structures and ( a /2)* in BCC structures, where [xyz] donates a vector of length sqrt(x 2 +y 2 +z 2 ) along the [xyz] crystal direction. The Burgers vector lengths are sqrt(2) a /2 and sqrt(3) a /2, in FCC and BCC structures, respectively. 0.212 = sqrt(2)*0.300/2. It is an FCC. 2. Critical Resolved Shear Stress a) The critical resolved shear stress for nickel is 60 MPa (8.75 ksi). Determine the minimum possible yield strength for a single crystal of nickel pulled in tension. In order to determine the minimum possible yield strength for a single crystal of nickel pulled in tension, we simply employ Equation 8.5 as y = 2 crss = (2)(60 MPa) = 120 MPa (17.5 ksi) b) A single crystal of a metal that has the BCC crystal structure is oriented such that a tensile stress is applied in the  direction. If the magnitude of this stress is 30 MPa, compute the resolved shear stress in the  direction on each of the (110), (011), and (101) planes. This part of the problem asks, for a BCC metal, that we compute the resolved shear stress in the  direction on each of the (110), (011), and (101) planes. In order to solve this problem it is necessary to employ Equation 8.2, which means that we first need to solve for the for angles and for the three slip systems. For each of these three slip systems, the will be the same i.e., the angle between the direction of the applied stress,  and the slip direction, . This angle may be determined using Equation 8.6. cos where (for ) h 1 = 1, k 1 = 0, l 1 = 0, and (for ) h 2 = 1, k 2 = 1, l 2 = 1. Therefore, cos is determined as cos 11 01 01 1 3 3 3 Let us now determine cos for the angle between the direction of the applied tensile stress (i.e., the  direction) and the normal to the (110) slip plane (i.e., the  direction). Again, using Equation 8.6 where h 1 = 1, k 1 = 0, l 1 = 0 (for ), and h 2 = 1, k 2 = 1, l 2 = 0 (for ), cos is equal to cos...
