The interaction between the special rotational deformation and the crack in deformed nanocrystalline ceramics and metals is investigated by the complex variable method. We have theoretically described the effects of the disclination quadrupole produced by the special rotational deformation on the emission of lattice dislocations from the crack tip. The complex form expressions of the stress field and the force field are divided. The critical stress intensity factors for the first dislocation emission are calculated. The influence of the disclination strength, the grain size (the quadrupole arms), the location of the disclinations and the angle between the crack plane and one of the quadrupole arms, as well as the crack length on the critical stress intensity factors is discussed in detail. And the results show that, the special rotational deformation has great influence on the dislocation emission from the crack tip. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
