What is it about?

We investigate how the interactions between dislocations on different slip systems lead to heterogeneous deformation in single crystals

Why is it important?

Nickel single crystals are used in turbine blades and understanding their deformation behavior in dependence on their orientation helps to produce safer air planes


Investigate, if a more realistic nonlocal model that incorporates size effects confirms or refutes the findings.
