The features of plasticity nucleation in V-4Ti and V-16Ti crystallites under uniaxial tension and bilateral compression are studied. It is shown that the nucleation of plasticity in crystallites is associated with the formation of twins under uniaxial tension. During the development of plasticity, a screw dislocation cell structure is formed between twin plates. The strain and stress at which plasticity nucleates in the material decreases with increasing Ti concentration. It was found that the distribution pattern of Ti atoms in the initial structure has a significant effect on the elastic limit of the simulated crystallites. The plastic deformation of crystallites with 16% Ti under bilateral compression is realized only by the dislocation mechanism. This behavior of the material is due to the low value of the stress at the elastic limit, which is insufficient for the formation of twins.
