Abstract

The dislocation densities and arrangement parameters and the crystallite size and size-distributions are determined in tensile or cyclically deformed polycrystalline copper specimens by X-ray diffraction peak profile analysis. The Fourier coefficients of profiles measured by a special high resolution X-ray diffractometer with negligible instrumental broadening have been fitted by the Fourier transforms of ab-initio size and strain profiles. It is found that in the fatigued samples the dislocations are mainly of edge type with strong dipole character. In the fatigued specimens the dislocation densities are found to be larger than in the tensile deformed samples when the saturation and flow stress levels are the same.
