Avalanches in plastic deformation: maximum velocity statistics, finite temperature effects, and analysis of low time resolution data (2016-06-30)In both crystalline and amorphous solids, plastic deformation consists of intermittent jumps called avalanches, whose sizes are power-law-distributed over a scaling regime. In this thesis, we study the statistics of a ...
(2019-06-20)Slip avalanches occur in both crystalline and amorphous solids. Slip avalanches and avalanches in other systems are thought to be critical phenomena linked to a nonequilibrium phase transition. In this thesis we explore ...
