Constrained Diffusive Cavitation of Grain Boundaries

  • Hermann Riedel
Part of the Materials Research and Engineering book series (MATERIALS)


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.
