Deformation mechanism

Deformation mechanism refers to the various processes occurring at micro-scale that are responsible for changes in a material's internal structure, shape and volume. The process involves planar discontinuity and/or displacement of atoms from their original position within the crystal lattice system. These small changes are preserved in various microstructures of materials such as rocks, metals and plastics, and can be studied in depth using optical or digital microscopy.
