AbstractThe effects of dislocation climb on plastic deformation during loading and unloading are studied using a two-dimensional discrete dislocation dynamics model. Simulations are performed for polycrystalline thin films passivated on both surfaces. Dislocation climb lowers the overall level of the stress inside thin films and reduces the work hardening rate. Climb decreases the density of dislocations in pile-ups and reduces back stresses. These factors result in a smaller Bauschinger effect on unloading compared to simulations without climb. As dislocations continue to climb at the onset of unloading and the dislocation density continues to increase, the initial unloading slope increases with decreasing unloading rate. Because climb disperses dislocations, fewer dislocations are annihilated during unloading, leading to a higher dislocation density at the end of the unloading step.
