Slip most easily occurs along a ___. dislocation
Name the 3 types of dislocations. edge, screw, mixed

An edge dislocation is ___. an extra plane of atoms
The deformation direction is labeled with a ___ vector. Burgers
For edge dislocations, Burgers vector is ___ to the dislocation line. perpindicular
The Burgers vector is the direction of the ___ force. shear

A screw dislocation is a ___. ramped step
For screw dislocations, Burgers vector is ___ to the dislocation line. parallel
When a dislocation moves it is called ___. slip
Slip is easiest along ___ in the ___ directions. close packed planes, close packed
Combinations of close packed planes and close packed directions are called ___. slip systems
___ metals are fairly strong, yet still ductile. FCC
___ metals are stronger, but not very ductile. BCC
___ metals are strongest, but very brittle. HCP
T or F? The more ductile a material, the less strength and vice versa. True
T or F? Dislocations weaken a material. False
Frank Read Source says that applying force to a material ___(increases/decreases) the number of dislocations. increases

Name the types of point defects. vacancy, interstitial, substitutional, interstitialcy
What are the types of interstitialcy defects? Frenkel, Schottky
Frenkel defects are ___. when ions are in the wrong spot
Schottky defects are ___. vacancies of a pair of ions, one anion and one cation
With Schottky defects, the overall charge ___. remains neutral
Which defects are in ceramics only? Frenkel and Schottky
T or F? Dislocations can cross grain boundaries. False
Larger grain size results in ___(increased/decreased) strength. decreased
