We adopted the verified absolute-reaction theory which originates from the quantum chemistry approach to explain the anomalous plastic flow or plastic deformation for Si nanowires irradiated with 100 keV (at room temperature regime) Ar$^+$ ions as well as the observed amorphization along the Si nanowire [Nano Lett. {\bf 2015}, 15, 3800-3807]. We also demonstrate some formulations which can help us calculate the temperature-dependent viscosity of flowing Si in nanodomains.
