However Windows 10 actually comes with a Linux (Ubuntu) subsystem called WSL (Windows subsystem for Linux), which ...

The other answer is great and comes from a viewpoint of macroscopic plasticity. I'd just like to note that another perspective on plasticity exists, a multiscale view based on following atomistic mechanisms up through the length scales to aim for an understanding of plasticity that is increasingly based on physical mechanisms. The enormous range of length ...

Plasticity is still an actively researched area. The Ludwik-Hollomon equation is one model that is used for the strain-hardening region since it captures the convex shape of the curve using a power law: $$\sigma = K \epsilon^{n} \tag{1}$$ Here, $n$ is known as the strain hardening coefficient or strain hardening exponent. This equation only captures the ...
