Motivated by recent attenuation experiments on finely grained samples, we reanalyse the Raj-Ashby model of grain-boundary sliding. Two linearly elastic layers having finite thickness and identical elastic constants are separated by an interface (grain boundary) whose location is a given periodic function of position. Dissipation is confined to that interfacial region. It is caused by two mechanisms: a slip (boundary sliding) viscosity, and grain-boundary diffusion, with corresponding Maxwell...[Show more]
