According to Reed-Hill , "An edge dislocation
is able of moving either by slip on its slip plane or by climb in a way perpendicular to its slip plane.
The edge dislocation
is analyzed in sections [section]9-3, [section]9-5 and [section]15-2 of .
(i) Edge dislocation
b//OX: the field [u.sup.rel] is derived from two stress potentials [[phi].sub.1] and [[phi].sub.2] mentioned in  but calculated at the limit of an infinite thickness:
Model Nucleation point of Identified dislocation emission deformation mechanism A Edge dislocation
Pyramidal slip B Grain boundary Twin C Grain boundary Twin D Grain boundary Twin E Grain boundary Twin f Grain boundary Twin & Basal slip G Grain boundary Basal slip H Grain boundary Basal slip I Grain boundary Basal slip J In grains Prismatic slip K Grain boundary Prismatic slip L Grain boundary Prismatic slip M Grain boundary Prismatic slip
The pointwise hydrostatic stress around an edge dislocation
can be calculated as 
During the growth, due to possible dynamics cause and local heating, slight edge dislocation
and little curve would be formed.
Bai, "Experimental examination of displacement and strain fields in an edge dislocation
core," Acta Materialia, vol.
The high tensile load produces plastic flow due to movement of edge dislocation
with Cottrell atmosphere such that the edge dislocation
separates from the enclosed interstitial solutes.
Some paper subjects are defect analysis in semiconductor materials based on p-n junction diode characteristics, electronic structure and doping effects of Ni and Co on a kink in the edge dislocation
of BCC iron, peculiarities of discontinuous precipitation in the Pb-Sn alloy, and local vibrational modes of Zn-H-P in GaP, InP, and ZnTe.
The binding energy of a boron atom to an edge dislocation
is considered to be large (~0.7 eV) and is comparable to that calculated for carbon in iron (~1.0 eV) .
Weinberger simulated the Peierls stress of an edge dislocation
in molybdenum with modified Finnis-Sinclair potential to check the thickness dependence of the Peierls stress .
There are two types of dislocations: an edge dislocation
for which [b.sup.[mu]][[xi].sup.[mu]] = 0 and a screw dislocation which can be right-handed for which [b.sup.[mu]][[xi].sup.[mu]] = b, or left-handed for which [b.sup.[mu]][[xi].sup.[mu]] = -b, where b is the magnitude of the Burgers vector.
