Abstract : Changes in flow stress, which occur in indium at the transition from the normal to the superconducting states, have been studied in a series of experiments in which strain rate, state, and temperature are changed independently. The results are consistent with a simple theory which associates the changes in flow stress with changes in activation volume and thus with the nature of the interaction between moving dislocations and obstacles.
