Abstract

A conceptual substantiation of the necessity to consider the nanoscale structural level of plastic strain in the physics of plasticity and strength of solids is presented. It is inferred that the fundamental mechanism of plastic strain is represented by local structural transformations (of the type of rearrangement of atomic clusters of various configurations) that occur in a loaded solid in local zones of tensile normal stresses. This mechanism determines generality of the nature of all possible kinds of plastic deformation of solids.
