inhomogeneous strain Strain, distributed unevenly throughout a deformed body, in which straight lines and parallel lines in the undeformed material become curved and non-parallel on deformation. The mathematical theory describing the geometry of inhomogeneous strain is very complex and it is usual to divide this strain into smaller components of homogeneous strain.
