Overall stress and strain rates for crystalline materials with an "internal structure" are considered. It has been shown that these measures are related to some kinematical constraints which govern the evolution of the internal structure such as development of slip or shear bands within grains and on grain boundaries, growth of voids or microcracks. The overall stress and strain rates provide a framework for a micromechanically based constitutive modeling.
