Kinematics of Crystalline Solids

  • John D. Clayton
Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 177)


Chapter 3 provides descriptions of kinematics of crystalline materials undergoing various deformation mechanisms at the microscopic scale. Specifically, such deformation mechanisms can include recoverable and residual elasticity, thermal expansion or contraction, plasticity manifesting from dislocation glide, and volume changes resulting from point defects and voids. A description of kinematics of deformation twinning is postponed until Chapter 8.
