18 Dislocations in Anisotropic Media

18.1 Dislocation Character and Geometry

Imagine a cut made within an otherwise unbounded elastic medium, where the cut is over an open surface, , that is bounded by a line, (see Fig. 18.1). To create the dislocation, material is displaced everywhere across the cut surface by a constant vector, b. The displacement vector b is called the Burgers vector. Where such a displacement would cause a gap, extra material is imagined inserted so as to make the body continuous. Where such displacement would cause material ...
