The work was aimed at investigations into macromechanisms of polycrystal plastic deformation on the basis of systematic study of crystals behaviour under various loads as a synergetic system. Experiments were conducted on specimens of lead and its alloys containing small amounts of one of the following elements: As, Sb, Sn, Te, Cu. The specimens were tested under active tension, creep and alternating bending. Methods of light and electron microscopy were used to reveal structural changes in crystals under deformation. Synergetic approach was shown to permit description of plastic deformation and fracture regularities from a unified viewpoint on the basis of the theory of structural levels of deformation in solids.
