Lueders lines

Elongated surface markings or depressions, often visible to the unaided eye, that form along the length of a tension specimen at an angle of approximately 45° to the loading axis. Caused by localized plastic deformation, they result from discontinuous (inhomogeneous) yielding. Also known as Lueders bands, Hartmann lines, Piobert lines, or stretcher strains. - Internet Partner
