Analysis of experimental results obtained in recent years is used for concluding that surface layers of loaded solid bodies are an independent subsystem in which wave mechanisms of plastic yielding develop and determine the nucleation of primary strain-induced defects of all kinds. These processes play the role of synergetic activator of plastic yielding in the bulk of deformed solids.
