The paper studies the generation and evolution of dynamic vortex structures in a material on different structural scales. It is shown that the generation of dynamic vortex structures can be the main accommodation mechanism in a material under external mechanical loading. On the microscale, these structures can provide inter-granular sliding and grain boundary migration with anomalously high rates. On higher structural scales, their evolution can be the main process responsible for nucleation and propagation of cracks, fragmentation of material, formation of a "quasiliquid" layer in friction pairs, etc. The data and conclusions derived from the study are confirmed by numerical calculations for different types of materials in the framework of molecular dynamics and movable cellular automaton methods.
