Advent in Dynamic Recovery of Dislocation Cusps: Especially for Loosely Tangled Dislocations

Prantik Mukhopadhyay


Steady state dynamic recovery Kinetics is defined to quantify dislocation density during macro and micro-scale ausforming. High-stress regime of ausforming is liable to follow the rate controlling dynamic recovery kinetics of thermal glide by rapid advancements of kinks. Crystallographic orientation,  specific Taylor factor,  is observed to increase the work-hardening induced dynamic recovery. Stacking fault energy,  is found to be inversely proportional to. Distance covered by kinks,  is expressed as dislocation spacing of opposite signs. Crystallographic texture component S is found to be dynamically recovered faster than Goss orientation.
