Slip Circle Constructions for Inhomogeneous Rotational Flow
Humphreys’ simple construction to aid understanding of the patterns of rotational plastic flow observed near undeformable particles in a ductile plastically sheared matrix can be generalised to predict flow under hardness indenters in crystalline metals. The consequences for internal stress distributions and polycrystalline plasticity are briefly indicated.
