Nonlocal modeling of size-dependent response of thin films Conference Paper uri icon


  • A closed-form solution is presented for the plastic response of a single crystal thin film strained by its substrate during thermal loading, according to Gurtins strain gradient theory. The results are compared with those of discrete dislocation simulations.
