Abstract We present dislocation simulations involving the collective behavior of partials and extended full dislocations in nanocrystalline materials. While atomistic simulations have shown the importance of including partial dislocations in high strain rate simulations, the behavior of partial dislocations in complex geometries with lower strain rates has not been explored. To account for the dissociation of dislocations into partials we include the full representation of the gamma surface for two materials: Ni and Al. During loading, dislocation loops are emitted from grain boundaries and expand into the grain interiors to carry the strain. In agreement with h...
