Lüder band

A Lüder band is a localized band of plastic deformation that can occur on some materials before fracture.

These bands can arrise from residual stresses due to welding.

Lüder bands often are a result of strain ageing by discontinuous yielding and can be commercially important for producing wrinkled lined finishes.
