The work is experimental and theoretical study of folded structures formed on free surfaces of polycrystalline materials under uniaxial tension. General mechanisms by which the folded deformation relief develops are demonstrated with the example of EK-181 steel. Numerical simulation shows that the polycrystalline structure of the material can be a condition responsible for local curvature of its initially flat surface and hence for periodic distribution of normal tensile and compressive stresses.
