      Education

      Born into a Sephardi Jewish family, he studied at Nottingham High School, then at New College, Oxford where he obtained a first-class honours degree in physics in 1937 and another in mathematics in 1938. At the University of Bristol his work under Professor Nevill Francis Mott, a future Nobel Laureate in physics, earned him the Oxford degree of B.Sc. (then equivalent to an M.Sc. elsewhere). Then followed an M.A. in 1945. Within a few years he had risen to a leading role in the field of crystal lattice dislocations and plasticity. In this period he wrote a number of seminal papers which are still cited. Later papers and the books that he published cemented his dominance of the field. (See also Egon Orowan)
      Military and academic career

      At the outbreak of World War II, Nabarro became involved in the aerial defence of London and joined the Army Operational Research Group, headed by then Brigadier B.F.J. Schonland. His work on the explosive effects of shells resulted in his being made an MBE.

      From 1945 to 1949, Nabarro was a research fellow at the University of Bristol and later became a lecturer in metallurgy at the University of Birmingham, for which the university awarded him a D.Sc. in 1953. In this year, he was invited to become professor of physics and head of the physics department at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, which needed to be improved and directed towards the physics of solids in order to co-operate more fruitfully with industry on the Witwatersrand. Nabarro built the physics department into one of the strongest in the country and moulded it into a leader in metallurgical research. His own research centred on 'creep', or gradual metal failure under imposed stress, and crystal dislocations, which results in the deformation of metals. Within a few years he had built up solid state physics at Wits to considerable strength. Through careful appointments he ensured the diversification of the department into magnetic resonance spectroscopy, low temperature physics, optical spectroscopy and theoretical physics. Later, with the hiring of Friedel Sellschop, the department branched into nuclear physics.

      Influenced by the work of Clarence Zener, he was the first to propose that the contribution of grain boundaries to the flow stress was inversely proportional to the square root of the grain size. He predicted the existence and magnitude of diffusional creep and improved Peierls' estimate of the stress required to move a dislocation through a perfect lattice named the Peierls-Nabarro force after the two. He furthermore showed how theoretical and experimental estimates of this stress could be reconciled. Later he turned his attention to creep-resistant materials, in particular to the mechanism of rafting in superalloys, and more recently contributed to the theory of dislocation patterning.

      During his term as Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University of the Witwatersrand, his portfolio was described as "academic". This meant that he was responsible for academic staffing and planning, the organization of Senate business, and so on. The then Vice-Chancellor, Prof. D J du Plessis, was already planning, from 1978 onwards, the "transformation" of the university which would occur once the government allowed it to enroll students of all races. He set up three teams, to consider the academic implications, the finding of land to accommodate a large influx of students, and the financial aspects.

      Professor Nabarro was responsible for the first team. He had to estimate how many new students the university could expect and when, how much accommodation they would need, and the logistics of moving a large number of students efficiently from one class to another.

      This "Academic Plan" was the first to be devised by a South African university. Nabarro's team predicted that half of the university's student body would be "black" by the year 2000. This figure was already reached by 1997. They also realized that this influx of new students would suffer from poor education, with particular problems in mathematics, science and the use of the English language. With the aid of outside sponsors, they set up activities both within the university and in schools to help with these problems. Nabarro played a large part in coordinating these.

      Frank Nabarro was one of five founding members of the South African Institute of Physics in 1955 who attended the jubilee celebration of the Institute in 2005. He was a Vice-President of the Institute and throughout his life he remained a loyal and enthusiastic supporter of its role in promoting Physics in South Africa.

      He married Margaret Constance Dalziel (deceased 2 September 1997) on 25 June 1948. They had 3 sons and 2 daughters.
      Footnotes

      He hosted regular evening sessions for undergraduates at his home, during which lively physics discussions would take place. He was an avid reader of Marcel Proust, and had an enduring love of classical music, which he shared with his wife Margaret, who was a noted ethno-musicologist. He was Honorary President of the Johannesburg Musical Society, and in memory of his wife, he established the Margaret Dalziel Nabarro Chamber Concert Fund.

      Frank Reginald Nunes Nabarro

      07 March 1916 - 20 July 2006
      Johannesburg, South Africa
      University of the Witwatersrand

      Submitted by Mary Jean Scott

      Published on 28 August 2006

      Frank Nabarro, Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa, passed away on July 20, 2006 at the age of 90, after a distinguished career spanning almost seven decades. He was best known for his pioneering contributions to the theory of crystal lattice dislocations and their role in plasticity and work hardening. There can be few major developments in this field that he did not in some way leave his imprint on. He wielded enormous influence through his highly regarded monograph ?Theory of Crystal Dislocations?, his extensive editing activities, particularly on the encyclopedic series of books ?Dislocations in Solids?, and his innumerable personal ties. Nabarro grew up in the UK, and by the late 1930?s had obtained degrees in mathematics and physics from Oxford University. Initially guided by Neville Mott, he undertook calculations of the dependence of the flow stress of a crystal on solute atoms and precipitates, highlighting the role of the flexibility of the dislocations involved. With Herbert Fröhlich he investigated the orientation of nuclear spins in a metal. In 1940 he published four papers on these topics, and was launched on his research career. During World War II he worked for the British Army Operational Research Group, for which he was later awarded an MBE.

      After the War he resumed his academic career at Bristol University and later Birmingham University, the latter conferring on him the degree of DSc in 1953. During this period he wrote a number of seminal papers which established his reputation. His research output continued unabated throughout his life, and he rose to a position of unrivalled leadership in his field. He contributed important ideas to many topics, including the elastic theory of dislocations (which forms the basis of his monograph), dislocation pileup, work and solution hardening, Harper-Dorn and diffusional creep, the Peierls-Nabarro stress (which he always referred to as the Peierls stress), the effect of elastic energy on the shape of precipitate particles, the interaction of sound waves with dislocations, and crystal whiskers. In recent years he turned his attention to creep resistant materials and rafting in superalloys which, with de Villiers, he surveyed in a monographHe has also published on quasicrystals, nematic liquid crystals, superconductivity, disclinations and biomaterials.

      In 1953 Nabarro moved to South Africa to take up the position of Head of the Department of Physics at the University of the Witwatersrand. Within a few years he built up the department to significant strength in a number of areas. He served the University in various capacities, including a term as Deputy Vice Chancellor. During his tenure in that position he was responsible for drawing up the first academic plan of any South African University which prepared for the anticipated large influx of black students as the strictures of apartheid broke down.

      He retired in 1984, but remained an active member of the University community, always generous with his time and wise counsel. Even as recently as May 2006 he chaired a meeting that brought together interested parties to discuss the desirability of establishing a local centre of excellence in biomaterials.

      Nabarro had a significant input over many years in the development of physics and science as a whole in South Africa, through the active role he played in the SA Institute of Physics, the Royal Society of SA and Academy of Science of SA.

      Nabarro?s energy and resilience were phenomenal, his intellectual vitality extraordinary. He never stopped being active in research, and currently has two papers in press, one with Shrivastava and Luyckx on ?The size effect in micro-indentation?, and the other a thoughtful essay on ?Creep in commercially pure metals?. He was editing Volumes 13 and 14 of ?Dislocations in Solids? when he passed away. He traveled extensively, attending conferences and giving lectures wherever he went. Even as recently as May 2006, despite deteriorating health, he visited China and India, bringing to completion a research project with an Indian collaborator and giving a number of talks.

      Nabarro held visiting positions at a number of universities in the USA, Canada, the UK, Germany, France, Israel and Switzerland. He was the recipient of numerous awards, including the Institute of Materials Platinum Medal and a number of honorary doctorates, and there were festschrifts in his honor. He was a Foreign Associate of the US Academy of Engineering, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of the UK.

      Current comments and reminiscences on Frank Reginald Nunes Nabarro:

      Although I met Prof. Nabarro only relatively recently (during a visit to Michigan in 2002), his monographs on dislocations in crystals had been well known to me since my undergraduate days. We engaged in a correspondance about issues related to dislocations in molecular solids, an area where I remain particularly interested in my own research activity. I saw him again at the ICEM-15 meeting in Durban, South Africa.

      Agreed to support [W.] Hume-Rothery's application for [F.R.N.] Nabarro without properly considering other possible applicants [for Beilby Memorial Award]. Comments on Nabarro's work; thinks his main achievement is the theory of the hardness of solid solutions. Difficult to compare Nabarro with H. Jones has done one important thing - the explanation of the Hume-Rothery rule; since then his work has been disappointing. Nabarro is an active, valuable member of a group which is putting a real experimental and mathematical basis behind the dislocation theory.

    • Professor Frank Nabarro, the theoretical physicist who has died aged 90, was a pioneer of solid-state physics, the science which underpins much of modern industrial technology.

      His most important research centred on "creep", a phenomenon whereby metals gradually fail under stress (the collapse of the World Trade Centre was attributed in part to creep), and in particular the type of creep which is caused by dislocations to the crystal structure of materials. He developed mathematical models to predict the behaviour under stress of particular metals and later turned his attention to analysing the properties of creep-resistant materials and superalloys. His book Theory of Crystal Dislocations (1967) remains a standard text.




      The son of a tax inspector, Frank Reginald Nunes Nabarro was born in London on March 7 1916. When he was still a boy, Frank's family moved to Cleethorpes, where he developed an interest in science after opting for chemistry at school rather than woodwork. Later his family moved to Nottingham, and he completed his schooling at Nottingham High School.

      Nabarro failed to get into Trinity College, Cambridge (he could not remember how to prove the Poiseuille formula for the flow of liquid through a round tube), but gained a scholarship to New College, Oxford, and graduated with a First in Physics in 1937 and another in Mathematics in 1938.

      During the war he joined the Army Operational Research Group, commanded by Brigadier Basil (later Sir Basil) Schonland, carrying out work on the explosive effects of shells. He worked alongside the future Nobel laureate Andrew Huxley and under the supervision of Patrick Blackett, who would win the 1948 Nobel Prize for Physics ? "quite a good team", as Nabarro conceded with typical understatement. He was appointed MBE in 1946. From 1945 to 1949 Nabarro was a research fellow at the University of Bristol, where he worked with John Eschelby and Charles Frank under the future Nobel laureate Professor Nevill Mott, and later became a lecturer in metallurgy at the University of Birmingham, working with Alan Cottrell.

      By this time he had won a reputation as a leading researcher in the field of crystal lattice dislocations and plasticity, writing a number of papers in this field which are still cited.

      On one occasion, after wrestling unsuccessfully for hours with a complex equation for predicting creep, he sought the advice of a professor of mathematics, Hans Heilbronn, who said: "Oh, this is quite trivial," and did the calculation in his head. "I said, 'Would you like to write a joint paper on this?'" Nabarro recalled. "He said, 'For heaven's sake, no. It would ruin my reputation. First of all the mathematics is trivial. Second, it has an application.'"

      In 1953 Nabarro was invited to become Professor and head of the Physics department at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, which was looking to improve its research into the teaching of metallurgy in order to help the development of industry. Over the next 30 years he built the physics department into a world leader in metallurgical research and, through a series of inspired appointments, diversified into magnetic resonance spectroscopy, low temperature physics, optical spectroscopy, and theoretical and nuclear physics.

      During his tenure at Witwatersrand, Nabarro took on a burden of administrative duties, serving as dean of his faculty and vice-chancellor of the university. He was convinced that the South African government would eventually have to abandon apartheid policies (to which he was always vehemently opposed) and, from the late 1970s onwards, was involved in planning an expansion of the university to accommodate the anticipated admission of students of all races.

      The resulting "Academic Plan", in which Nabarro predicted that half the university's student body would be black by 2000 (in fact the figure was reached in 1997), was the first to be devised by a South African university. With the help of outside sponsors, Nabarro also helped to co-ordinate programmes to help these students to make up for the inadequate preparation in basic language and mathematical skills many of them would have received.

      Nabarro inspired generations of students with his enthusiasm for his subject and his generosity and quiet humour, often hosting convivial physics discussion sessions for undergraduates at his home. He was a great fan of Marcel Proust and shared a passion for classical music with his wife, Margaret, an ethno-musicologist.

      Nabarro was vice-president of the South African Institute of Physics, and attended the jubilee celebration of the Institute in 2005. He won numerous awards and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1971.

      He married, in 1948, Margaret Dalziel, with whom he had three sons and two daughters. After his wife's death in 1997, he established the Margaret Dalziel Nabarro Chamber Concert Fund in her memory.

    • Occupation: Professor of Physics
    • FRANK REGINALD NUNES NABARRO was born on
      March 7, 1916, in London, England. He received his early
      schooling in Nottingham and, in 1934, went up to New College,
      Oxford, to study physics. Recognizing that his strength was in
      theory, he proceeded to take ? rst-class honors in mathematics
      and physics.
      Early Career
      In a very real sense, Nabarro was “?present at the creation”?
      of dislocation theory of crystal plasticity, and he continued to
      be a primary contributor to this important area of physics and
      materials science. Guided by Nevill Mott, a future Nobel
      laureate, in 1940 he published the ? rst quantitative model of
      the ? ow stress of crystals hardened by a solid solution. To show
      the importance of the ? exibility of dislocation lines in sampling
      solute atoms on the glide plane, he introduced the concept of
      “?line tension”? of dislocations, an important tool in dislocation
      theory in problems of ? ow stress.
      During the Second World War, Nabarro worked for the
      British Army Operational Research Group (AORG) headed by
      Brigadier Basil Schonland, who later became the ? rst president
      of the South African Council for Scientific and Industrial
      Research. Schonland later played an important part in recruiting
      Nabarro for the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in
      Johannesburg. For his wartime services, Nabarro was awarded
      the Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 1946.

      After the war, Nabarro resumed his academic career in Mott’?s
      group at Bristol University, as a Royal Society Warren Research
      Fellow. During his Bristol period, he made important advances
      in the theory of metal plasticity and dislocation theory of work
      hardening. He also pioneered the landmark development
      referred to as “?diffusional ? ow”? independent of the work of
      Herring. Other ? rsts during this period included collaboration
      with F. C. Frank and J. D. Eshelby in considering dislocation
      pile-ups that were thought to play an important part in work
      hardening of crystals and in fracture. He also provided a
      fundamental reevaluation of the model of Rudolph Peierls for
      the lattice resistance to slip, referred to since as the “?Peierls-
      Nabarro force.”?
      In 1948, Frank Nabarro married Margaret Dalziel, who had
      been Schonland’?s personal assistant. In 1949, he joined
      Birmingham University to take up a lectureship in the
      Metallurgy Department. While at Birmingham, he published
      the first definitive review of the mathematical theory of
      stationary dislocations. In recognition of his considerable
      achievements, Birmingham University honored him with a
      D.Sc. in 1953.
      The Move to South Africa
      In 1953, in response to personal inducements by Schonland,
      Nabarro moved to South Africa to head the Department of
      Physics at Wits, where he built up the Physics Department to
      considerable strength in several areas. He often advised students
      on their experimental work, but he was at his best, as always,
      on theory. If an elaborate calculation had been performed, he
      quickly recognized anything that was false or incorrect.
      Even though the responsibilities of running a department
      took him out of the scienti? c mainstream for some years,
      through prodigious effort he remained on the cutting edge of
      his ? eld. During those years, he returned to the writing of his
      monograph, Theory of Crystal Dislocations, which was published
      by Clarendon Press: Oxford, in 1967. The book was an important
      resource on basic concepts for many years.
      As the demands of his position as department head eased,
      Nabarro was able to devote more of his time to research, and
      over the years, he contributed key ideas to many areas of
      dislocation physics. In later years, he turned his attention to
      quasi-crystals, dislocation patterning in plastic deformation,
      and creep-resistant materials and rafting in superalloys. The
      latter interest eventually resulted in his more recent monograph,
      The Physics of Creep, (CRC, 1995), which he wrote in collaboration
      with deVilliers.
      In 1961, Nabarro became the director of the Solid State
      Physics Research Unit (SSPRU) of South Africa, which was
      responsible for coordinating sponsored research activities at
      universities in collaboration with industrial research
      organizations. From the outset, the activities of SSPRU were
      divided between basic physics and projects with a direct bearing
      on the South African economy.
      In the 1970s, after a short stay in Orsay, France, Nabarro
      developed an interest in liquid crystals and in the role of
      dislocations and disclinations in biological materials. This led,
      among other things, to an analysis of the structure of an insect
      muscle and its ? exure, which appears to have anticipated the
      ideas of some biologists and, later, during a sabbatical leave in
      Berkeley in 1977, to a successful mechanistic description of the
      crenation of red blood cells by drugs.
      Nabarro often passed on Mott’?s advice to young researchers:
      “?Try to get a mental picture of what is going on, then ? nd the
      simplest theory that contains the essential facts. When things
      become complicated, leave the details to someone else.”? Nabarro
      knew his limits and was always open to contributions from
      people whose skills complemented his own.
      Nabarro served Wits in various capacities, including a term
      as deputy vice chancellor during which, in 1981, he drew up
      an Academic Plan, the ? rst for any South African university,
      which anticipated a large in? ux of black students after the end
      of apartheid. His support never wavered for opening the doors
      of academe in South Africa to everyone who could bene? t from
      higher education. In his graduation address to the University
      of Natal on April 28, 1988, he expressed his contempt for the
      Separate Universities Act: “?The biggest blow that the
      government struck at the liberal universities of South Africa in
      1959 was to deprive us of our right to be . . . ”? He often voiced his belief that a university was a community of scholars and
      should be governed in a collegiate way, a view that differed
      somewhat from the later ethos that often valued more qualitycontrol
      audits, and the like.
      Nabarro was an inspiring teacher and mentor. A generation
      of physics graduates from Wits remembers fondly evening
      sessions at his home, where the human side of physics was
      revealed. His lectures were challenging and forced students to
      think. Through them, students saw that physics was not cut
      and dried, but an open-ended, evolving subject.
      Retirement, Honors, and New Opportunities
      Nabarro retired in 1984 but remained an active member of
      the Wits community, always generous with his time and wise
      counsel. Loyiso Nongxa, vice chancellor of Wits, in a farewell
      tribute to Nabarro, declared, “?He was an inspiration to
      generations of scientists, and he had a signi? cant in? uence on
      the thought and direction of this university. He was renowned
      for his brilliant mind, sharp intellect, meticulousness, and his
      unique sense of humor.”? Nabarro always cared deeply about
      South African people and their future.
      Nabarro was elected to the Royal Society (London) in 1971.
      He was elected an honorary fellow of the Royal Society of South
      Africa in 1973 and served as its president from 1988 to 1991. He
      was a council member of the South African Institute of Physics
      for a number of years, and a vice president from 1988 to 1991.
      He was also a member of the Science and Engineering Academy
      of South Africa.
      In 1966, he was elected a foreign associate member of the
      U.S. National Academy of Engineering, the only member on
      the African continent. In recognition of his local stature, he was
      awarded the South African Presidential Decoration of the Order
      of Mapungubwe. Among other honors, he was also the recipient
      of honorary doctorates (D.Scs) from Wits, University of Cape
      Town, University of Natal, and University of Pretoria.
      Nabarro held visiting positions at several universities in the
      United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. He was the recipient of numerous awards, including the De Beers Gold
      Medal of the South African Institute of Physics, the Platinum
      Medal from the Institute of Materials, and the R. E. Mehl Award
      of the The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) in the
      United States. Festschrifts in his honor were published by the
      Royal Society of South Africa in 2003 and by Philosophical
      Magazine in 2006.
      Nabarro was not only an outstanding scientist, but was also
      a well-informed, cultured man. He shared a love of classical
      music with his wife Margaret, who was a notable musicologist.
      He was honorary president of the Johannesburg Musical
      Society, and in memory of Margaret, he established the Margaret
      Dalziel Nabarro Chamber Concert Fund.
      Nabarro had an uncanny ability to get along with people
      across the political spectrum in South Africa. Many people
      admired him most for his sheer lust for life, his phenomenal
      energy and resilience, and his extraordinary intellectual vitality.
      He traveled extensively, attending conferences and giving
      lectures wherever he went. In the United States, he attended
      the Gordon Conferences on Physical Metallurgy for many years,
      many topical conferences of the TMS, and symposia of the
      Materials Research Society. Just months before his death, in
      spring 2006, in spite of serious health problems and a painful
      broken foot, he visited India and China. When he passed away
      on July 20, 2006, he was editing volumes 13 and 14 of Dislocations
      in Solids, a series of books he had edited over the years. His
      mind remained razor sharp to the end.
