This classic text of elementary dislocation theory has been reprinted to fulfill persistent demand. Because it approaches elementary dislocation theory from its most basic level, the material contained in the volume is as up-to-date as when it was first published. The text addresses many aspects of dislocation theory, including the nature of dislocations, Burgers vectors, motion and its impact on dislocations, internal stresses of dislocations, and multiplication of dislocations. The topics of this text are fundamental to the theory of dislocation behavior. Because dislocation is now widely recognized as a key factor determining the behavior of crystalline solids, specialists in electronics materials, as well as fracture mechanics, and materials science and engineering should have a solid grounding in this field. A large number of problems is provided in the text.
"The new edition by Oxford University Press will be warmly welcomed. . . . what the book does cover, it covers very well. . . . anyone working with dislocations will want to have a copy of this book. It is strongly recommended as supplementary reading for any introductory course on defects. Oxford University Press should be applauded for rescuing this classic." --Microscopy Research and Technique "Classic. . . . addresses fundamental aspects of dislocation theory. This book should certainly be of interest to faculty offering an undergraduate course in dislocation theory, or to researchers with little knowledge of mechanics and dislocation theory." --Condensed Matter News "It is indeed a boon to students of materials that this fine book . . . has now been reprinted by Oxford University Press. The book is just as pertinent now as it was in 1964 since it very clearly teaches the essential concepts about dislocations at a basic level. This text is a must for the personal library of every materials person, including the old timers whose copies no doubt are by now in tatters from much use." --Journal of the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society
