The characteristics of the transient process of relaxation to steady-state deformation in solids are investigated theoretically. Various loading regimes are modeled by the method of mobile cellular automata. It is shown that the stressed state in a material is highly inhomogeneous in the relaxation stage; this property, in turn, can produce stable structures in the velocity field of the material particles and influence the evolution of deformation in later stages.
