Irradiation and plastic deformation can induce the stabilization of non-equilibrium phases in alloys. A simple kinetic atomistic model is used to describe these two conditions. Monte Carlo simulations are performed on alloys with positive heats of mixing and common features and major differences are observed. Alloys under irradiation undergo dynamical transitions between steady states; in alloys under shear, such transitions are not observed. These differences originate from the size of the perturbation induced by external forcing.
