Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In the present work, the deformation behaviour of a niobium single crystal has been simulated using crystal plasticity theory. Unlike face-centered-cubic crystal, body·centered-cubic crystal has three families of slip systems (110)[111], (112)[111] and (123)[111] with a total of 48 slip systems. Therefore interdependency off the crystal parameters of each family of slip system plays an important role.
