The plastic flow of metals and alloys in a single-crystal and polycrystalline state involves processes in which different types of waves are generated. In the easy glide and linear work-hardening stages of flow, a new type of wave is found to propagate. The motion velocity of these waves is found to be inversely proportional to the work-hardening coefficient. The space period of the local strains region is proportional to the logarithm of the specimen length.
