Results of experiments on determination of different mechanisms of relaxation of fields of elastic stresses connected with disclination-type defects in the process of growth of nanoparticles and microcrystals with pentagonal symmetry, which form due to electrocrystallization of fcc metals, are discussed. The effectiveness of the use of the disclination approach for analysis of the experimental data obtained is considered.
