Relaxation of misfit strains at interfaces between two different materials by dislocation punching is studied analytically by focusing on two types of interfaces: planar and nonplanar. As an example of planar type interface, the case of metal coating/ ceramic substrate system is studied while ceramic filler/metal matrix composite system is examined as an example of a nonplanar interface. Based on the present analytical model, the condition for dislocation punching for each interface is established. Validity of the dislocation punching model is verified by comparing the analytical results with limited experimental results, resulting in a good agreement.
