The mechanism of the change of the characteristic wavevector of the modulation in the incommensurate crystal relies in the nucleation of striplles. The striplle is a finite object constructed from discommensuration planes. The nucleation and growth of the striplle is demonstrated by the molecular dynamics simulation of a two-dimensional model. The influence of point defects on striplle growth are discussed.
