An original statistical model based on the Monte Carlo method is proposed and tested that makes it possible to simulate dislocation structures in crystals and calculate the stresses that they create. By applying this model to fluorite crystals, it is shown that the contribution of the dislocations to the residual stresses is one of the most important such contributions. © 2003 Optical Society of America
