The features of plastic flow localization at all stages of strain hardening and at the prefracture stage were analyzed. It was shown that macroscopic localization of plastic flow at these stages can be considered as a self-organization process. At the linear hardening stage, an autowave process of flow localization occurs in the sample, which is characterized by the wavelength and propagation velocity. At the prefracture stage, the autowave process collapses with macroneck formation followed by the nucleation of a ductile crack.
