Comment on "Portevin-Le Chatelier effect".


Instabilities of plastic flow in alloys and the associated deformation patterns are currently attracting a lot of attention. We comment on a recent investigation by Franklin et al. [Phys. Rev. E 62, 8195 (2000)] on one such type of instability, the Portevin-Le Chatelier effect, attempting to clarify a few points about the instability mechanism as well as the reported experimental results.
