Taylor Theory with Microscopic Slip Transfer Conditions
The main focus of the paper is an extension of the classical Taylor theory of plasticity to include the microscopic conditions for slip transfer at grain boundaries. It is demonstrated that such leads to consideration of the grain boundary character distribution function, in concert with the usual local state distribution function. The primary result is an expression for the generalized Taylor Factor that includes an inverse grain size dependence (Hall-Petch).
