- An elementary model is presented which illustrates the conditions under which flux-lattice shear, rather than pin breaking, limits the critical current density. An expression for the shear strength of the flux-lattice, based on the plasticity of metals and alloys, is used to derive the critical current density, including the effect of thermal activation in the flux creep regime.
