Plastic flow evolution was investigated for various metals and alloys, which differed in chemical bond and crystal lattice type (BCC/FCC/HCP), structural state (single-crystal/polycrystalline) and deformation mechanisms (dislocation glide/twinning). On the base of conclusive evidence it is attempted to explain the phenomenon of plastic flow localization by invoking a fundamental principle of quantum mechanics.
