Springer Proceedings in Mathematics and Statistics on Differential Geometry and Continuum Mechanics, Vol. 137, pages 123-165. Ed: G. Q Chen, M. Grinfeld, R.J. Knops (Proceedings of  Workshop held at the Intl. Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Edinburgh, 2013.)

The continuum mechanics of line defects representing singularities due to terminating discontinuities of the elastic displacement and its gradient field is developed. The development is intended for application to coupled phase transformation, grain boundary, and plasticity-related phenomena at the level of individual line defects and domain walls. The continuously distributed defect approach is developed as a generalization of the discrete, isolated defect case. Constitutive guidance for equilibrium response and dissipative driving forces respecting frame-indifference and non-negative mechanical dissipation is derived. A differential geometric interpretation of the defect kinematics is developed, and the relative simplicity of the actual adopted kinematics is pointed out. The kinematic structure of the theory strongly points to the incompatibility of dissipation with strict deformation compatibility.
