This Type of deformation involves breaking of a limited number of atomic bonds. This type of deformation involves stretching of the bonds without permanent atomic displacement. .Elastic & Plastic Deformation Basic Metallurgy Elastic Deformation: Deformation of a material that recovered when the applied load is removed. Plastic Deformation: Permanent deformation of a material that is not recovered when the applied load is removed.

Which is easier to cut? .Basic Metallurgy Microstructural Defects Theoretical yield strength predicted for perfect crystals is much greater than the measured strength. The existence of defects explains the difference.

Interface with movement of dislocations helps explain how materials are strengthened. Movement of dislocations helps to explain how materials deform.

Continued movement of the dislocation eventually creates a step (deformation) direction (C) . causing the dislocation to move one step (Burger’s vector) in the slip (b).Basic Metallurgy Motion of Dislocation When a shear stress is applied to the dislocation in (a). the atoms displaced.
