Continuously distributed edge dislocations in pileups near a circular inhomogeneity

Xu Wang and Peter Schiavone

Vol. 10 (2022), No. 1, 75–84

We use the theory of continuously distributed dislocations to formulate the static equilibrium condition for an edge dislocation pileup near a circular elastic inhomogeneity in terms of a singular integral equation. The singular integral equation is solved numerically using the Gauss–Chebyshev integration formula to arrive at the dislocation distribution function and the number of edge dislocations in the pileup. In our discussion, either the leading edge or the trailing end of the pileup can be located at the circular interface.
