For the specific slip geometry of two sets of coplanar systems (a total of four systems) in fcc metals, the range of dislocation networks in boundaries aligned with one of the two active slip planes is predicted from the Frank equation for boundaries free of long-range elastic stresses. Detailed comparison with experimental data for eight dislocation boundaries in cold-rolled aluminium grains of the 45° ND rotated Cube orientation is conducted. It is concluded that the boundaries are Low-Energy Dislocation Structures, which are in good agreement with the Frank equation while also lowering the energy by dislocation reactions. Cross slip plays a role in the boundary formation process.
