## What is/are Wedge Disclination?

Wedge Disclination - This process is accompanied by a reduction of internal stress fields and cancellation of the wedge disclination quadrupole.^{[1]}If dislocation segments have a normal burgers vector, then the stress field is equivalent to the stress field from the biaxial dipole of wedge disclinations.

^{[2]}Positive and negative partial wedge disclinations were inevitably formed in any kink band connections when the junction plane of the kink bands did not reach the surface of the body.

^{[3]}The plate contains in a flat state continuously distributed edge dislocations and wedge disclinations or other sources of internal stresses.

^{[4]}The stress and displacement fields and the energy of a wedge disclination in a nonlinear elastic cylinder under finite deformation are derived.

^{[5]}Consequently, the NLCs can align along the nonwoven thickness direction involving −1/2 wedge disclinations on both sides of the fibres.

^{[6]}Moreover, having reviewed the solution to line defects including glide edge dislocation and wedge disclination from the literature, the fields of a climb edge dislocation within micropolar, nonlocal micropolar and gradient micropolar elasticity are derived.

^{[7]}In this paper, the equilibrium equations are solved directly for straight twist and wedge disclinations, subject to the boundary conditions of the defects and rigid body translations/rotations.
