Spatiotemporal distributions of local components of the distortion tensor of a nonplastic material-yttria partially stabilized tetragonal zirconia (YTZ) ceramics-have been studied under active compressive straining conditions using double-exposure speckle photography techniques. The strain localization patterns are presented and the features of macroscopic strain inhomogeneity in the elastic state of YTZ ceramics are considered.
