Constrained Diffusive Cavitation of Grain Boundaries
Rupture lifetimes of engineering alloys are generally much greater than one would expect from the rate of diffusive cavity growth. Motivated by this general observation, Dyson (1976, 1979) proposed his constrained cavity growth model, which is explained next.
