A physical model of liquid inclusion motion in an inhomogeneously stressed crystal is stated. The model is based on the phenomenon of induced transitions of atoms of the matrix into the solution and back to the matrix. The dependence of the speed of inclusion motion on its size is obtained and it describes the experimental results with high accuracy. Numerical estimates of the inclusion’s characteristic parameters correspond to tabulated data and results obtained by other authors. The proposed model of induced inclusion motion in a crystal with an inhomogeneous dislocation distribution can be applied to the crystals with inhomogeneity of another nature.
