Within continuum dislocation theory the plastic deformation of bicrystals under a mixed deformation of plane constrained uniaxial extension and shear is investigated with regard to the nucleation of dislocations and the dislocation pile-up near the phase boundaries of a model bicrystal with one active slip system within each single crystal. For plane uniaxial extension, we present a closed-form analytical solution for the evolution of the plastic distortion and of the dislocation network in the case of symmetric slip planes (i.e. for twins), which exhibits an energetic as well as a dissipative threshold for the dislocation nucleation. The general solution for non-symmetric slip systems is obtained numerically. For a combined deformation of extension and shear, we analyze the possibility of linearly superposing results obtained for both loading cases independently. All solutions presented in this paper also display the Bauschinger effect of translational work hardening and a size effect typical to problems of crystal plasticity.
