The Effect of Solids Microcharacteristics on the Macroscopic Parameters of Plastic Deformation Localization in Metals


Article Preview

A new approach is proposed for description of autowave processes responsible for plastic deformation localization in metals and alloys. It is postulated that to a localized flow autowave there corresponds a quasi-particle. The characteristics of the quasi-particle have been determined. A direct relationship has been established between the processes involved in the deformation on a macro- and a micro-scale level.

The hypothetical generalized dispersion relationship for ultrasound waves (a linear one) and localized plasticity waves (a parabolic one). The highfrequency branch of this relationship is presented in the insertion. The experimental data was obtained for polycrystalline aluminum.
