ABSTRACT
<p>Intriguing analogies were found between a model of plastic deformation in crystals and turbulence in fluids. A study of this model provides remarkable explanations of known experiments and predicts fractal dislocation pattern formation. Further, the challenges encountered resemble those in turbulence, which is exemplified in a comparison with the Rayleigh-Taylor instability.</p>
INDEX TERMS
