A theoretical analysis of plane strain incompressible velocity fields is first carried out. Two types of local fields are distinguished according to the sign of det(L), where L is the velocity gradient tensor, whereas det(L)=0 is associated with simple shear. A geometrical interpretation is used to illustrate the various decompositions of L. Finally, it is suggested that the condition det(L)=0 can be used to predict the occurrence of shear bands during metal forming processes.

Diagrams illustrating the two types of plane strain incompressible velocity fields: (a) L⃗ lies outside cone (K), i.e., det L<0, two directions do not rotate; (b) L⃗ lies inside cone (K), i.e., det L>0, the rotation rate of any direction is nonzero
