Abstract : Two separate continuum dislocation theories are presented; one dealing with static incompatible, micropolar dislocations and disclinations, as encountered in initial stress problems, and the other with a dynamical theory of micromorphic solids containing continuous distributions of dislocations. Relationships between several continuum dislocation theories and micromorphic mechanics are established by providing extensions and new interpretations of the micromorphic theory. First both micromorphic and micropolar theories of elastic solids are summarized, and then the theories of Kroner, Fox, and Berdichevskii and Sedov are discussed in some detail within this framework. In the last section, by use of micromorphic kinematics, dislocation density, strain, and microstrain tensors are introduced and constitutive equations are constructed. Together with the balance laws this constitutes a complete dynamical theory. The theory is intended for predictions of motions and micromotions of a solid containing dislocations undergoing elastic deformations. From the micromotion, the dislocation density and first stress moments can be calculated. (Author)
