A procedure is offered and results of experimental evaluation of high-density pulse current effects on electrical resistance and relaxation of tensile elastic stresses are presented for a number of metallic materials. Based on analysis of experimental data, plastic strain rates are shown to be influenced by tensile stresses, current density, and temperature.
