Physically motivated dislocation density based models for the description of plastic deformation do need information about the underlying processes in a homogenized form. A rate formulation for the formation of the glissile junction for usage in continuum descriptions is developed by using three-dimensional Discrete Dislocation Dynamics. Furthermore, a contribution to the understanding of grain boundary modeling in Discrete Dislocation Dynamics as well as continuum descriptions is made.
