Sastry, DH and Shastry, CV and Tangri, K (1977) Is there an athermal region of plastic flow in metals at intermediate temperatures? In: Philosophical Magazine, 35 (4). 1099 -1103.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
The question of the existence or otherwise of an athermal temperature region of plastic flow in metals is examined. It is suggested that the athermal region is absent in metals with large dislocation densities. Such an explanation is provoked by a fairly recent proposition that the unzipping of attractive junctions is a plausible rate-controlling mechanism at high temperatures.
