# Plasticity implies the Volterra formulation: an example

## Primary tabs

A demonstration through an example is given of how the Volterra dislocation formulation in linear elasticity can be viewed as a (formal) limit of a problem in plasticity theory. Interestingly, from this point of view the Volterra dislocation formulation with discontinuous displacement, and non-square-integrable energy appears as a large-length scale limit of a smoother microscopic problem. This is in contrast to other formulations using SBV functions as well as the theory of Structured deformations where the microscopic problem is viewed as discontinuous and the smoother plasticity formulation appears as a homogenized large length-scale limit.
