The paper considers experimental and theoretical principles of accounting for curvature in multiscale computer simulation of the behavior of interfaces as independent planar subsystems in a loaded polycrystal. Dynamics of matter and energy flows along grain boundaries is studied using a hybrid discrete-continuous method of excitable cellular automata, which combines synergetic principles of discrete switching and laws of continuum mechanics. It is shown that these flows have a rotational-wave nature and depend on the loading conditions of a grain boundary.
