%X Molecular dynamics simulations were utilized to test the reliability of strain values obtained from diffraction data for noncrystalline alloys. We found that in the case of a one-component system, the strain value obtained from the pair correlation functions underestimates the actual value because of a small degree of atomic relaxations, which minimize the effects of the applied deformation. In the case of multicomponent systems, the different pairs are affected by applied deformation to different extents; moreover, this implies that the strain value determined from diffraction data should depend on the type of scattering.
