An analysis is made of the evolution of local deformations during the elongation of samples of fine-grained zirconium alloy. It is established that the deformation distribution patterns exhibit ordered behavior where the types of ordering are closely related to the stages of the deformation curve. The results are compared with similar data from studies of the deformation fields of single-crystal and polycrystalline materials with different types of crystal structures and deformation micromechanisms. It is noted that all these similar results, including those of the present study, may be interpreted using autowave representations.
