General discrete dislocation boundary value problem (fields uDDDD) is written as the superposition of: (i) dislocation fields in infinite space of homogeneous matrix material (ũ ,σ̃ ) and (ii) corrective fields to account for the inclusion and proper boundary conditions (u⁁ ,σ⁁ )

New superposition framework showing decomposition into two subsidiary problems: discrete dislocation (DD) subproblem solved with the standard formulation subject to generic boundary conditions, and elastic (EL) subproblem, which contains all specific boundary conditions and loading, solved with standard elastic FE

(Color online) Dislocations and normalized opening stress σ22/μ×103 in a 10×13 μm region near the crack tip for various substrate moduli just prior to failure (see triangles in Fig. 5): (a) E2/E1=1 with |K|/K0=1.118, (b) E2/E1=2 with |K|/K0=1.811, (c) E2/E1=6 with |K|/K0=2.304, and (d) E2/E1=∞ with |K|/K0=2.286. The crack opening profiles for each case are plotted below the x axis. All distances are in microns.

(Color online) Dislocations and normalized opening stress σ22/μ×103 in a 8×6 μm region near the crack tip for E2/E1=2 at four stages of loading (see circles in Fig. 5): (a) |K|/K0=0.966, (b) 1.208, (c) 1.449, and (d) 1.691. The crack opening profiles at each load are plotted below the x axis. All distances are in microns.

Schematic of the superposition technique applied to a 2D polycrystalline structure. Each DD problem is independent and thus the computation is easily parallelized.
