Introduction to Dislocations
Dislocations are defects in the crystal structure of important engineering materials, such as metals, ceramics and semi-conductors, that strongly influence the properties of these materials.
Research on dislocations was intense when the first edition of this classic work was published in the 1960s. By incorporating later developments in subsequent editions whilst retaining a concise, accessible style, Introduction to Dislocations has become established as a key resource for students, graduates and researchers. No other book on the topic is as credible and, with this new edition, as up-to-date.
Introduction to Dislocations is widely recognized to provide the essential knowledge base required for further study, research and technological application in the field. This update brings the book's coverage, references and context in line with the latest developments to ensure it remains a core reference for all those studying and working in the field today.
Advanced undergraduate and graduate students taking dislocations, mechanical properties, mechanisms of deformation and fracture, and properties of materials courses as part of broader mechanical engineering and materials science curricula; Industry and academic researchers in the subjects listed above.
