Volterra Dislocations in Power Law Elastic Materials
The solution for a Volterra dislocation, with edge and screw components, is given for an incompressible medium with a power law hardening or softening stress-strain law. The form of the stress, strain and displacement fields is identified with angular variations satisfying nonlinear integral equations. Results are presented for various values of the hardening (or softening) parameter.
