Strain gradient plasticity theories that have emerged during recent years to provide an explanation for size dependent behavior exhibited by some materials have also created a need for additional material parameters. In this study on PbSn solder alloys’ material length scale, which is needed for use in strain gradient plasticity type constitutive models, is determined. The value of length scale is in agreement with values available in literature for different materials like copper, nickel, and aluminum.
