Plasticity in metals is governed by collective motion and interactions of dislocations. BCC metals differ from FCC metals in how slip planes impact dislocations. PPM mesoscale team developed a simple temperature and rate dependent model for low-temperature plasticity in BCC transition metals. Based on dislocation kink-pair theory, the comparison achieves excellent validation across a broad phase space. Rate and temperature dependent plasticity is an important development milepost for high loading applications.
