Autowave Plasticity: Localization and Collective Modes discusses the nature of plastic flow in solids associated with the development of a localized plastic flow. Written by an authority in the field, the author demonstrates how patterns of localized plastic flow are associated with autowave modes that are generated in a deformable sample and delivers a complete work on the subject.
This reference will help readers create experimental methods to observe or localize plastic flow, and with the modelling of plastic flows. It is a valuable reference for graduate students and research specialists working in material science.
