Study of the micro-nonuniformity of the plastic deformation of steel


In 1949 Pashkov showed experimentally the enormous variation in strain from point to point in a polycrystalline metal. These large deviations from the mean strain are believed to have important effects upon the strength and flow characteristics of a metal. This work is continued in the present paper, in which the author presents a new statistical method for the study of nonuniform strains.
