The microscale material model is a research code that have been developed outside and used at CAVS for modeling dislocation interactions and reactions in an elastic continuum. The code is used in a hierarchical multiscale framework of the plasticity to obtained information related to the hardening of the material (see for example multiscale framework). Details of the discrete dislocations model can be found in the methodology paper.
The discrete dislocation simulation code can be used for HCP, BCC and FCC materials.
