With reference to polycrystal TiNi, a study is undertaken to see how mesoscopic substructures are formed at the various stages of loading. It is verified by experiment that the principle of similitude is obeyed in the sequential evolution of various shifts and the corresponding stages in stress-strain curves at the microscopic and mesoscopic scale levels where the motion of dislocations gives way to the motion of three-dimensional structural elements.
