Discrete Dislocation Dynamics Simulation on Strengths of Dislocation Network Stacks in Multilayered Structures
Strengths of multilayered structures have been investigated using three-dimensional discrete dislocation dynamics (DDD) simulation. The multilayered structure was modeled as a stack of misfit dislocation networks which must exist at an interface between adjoining crystals having different lattice constants. Passages of a single mobile dislocation through several kinds of network stacks were simulated. The critical stress required for the dislocation passage depended on the dislocation spacing of the network, the number of network sheet and the spacing between network sheets.
