Computer simulation of serrated yielding
A model for serrated yielding based on the negative resistance characteristics of materials is discussed. An analog computer based on this model is described. The simulated curves show oscillations which are regular and uniform in amplitude. To simulate more realistic tensile test curves, a refined model which includes the effects of fluctuations in dislocation density and velocity is described. Some simulated curves using this refined model are presented. These results are close to observed tensile test curves.
