Abstract

In this study, the dissociation and core properties of dislocations with the Burgers vectors [111] and [100] in YCu and YAg B2 rare-earth intermetallic compounds were investigated by utilizing the generalized Peierls-Nabarro model. The results are compared with those seen for the common B2 intermetallic alloy MAL The results indicate that the dislocations with the Burgers vector [111] in the three intermetallics exhibit similar dissociation characteristics and the core sizes. On the other hand, owing to the lower stacking fault energy along the [100] direction in YAg and YCu, the dislocations with the Burgers vector [100] show a different dissociation in comparison to those seen in NiAl, indicating an easier activation of the [100] slip modes in YCu and YAg.
