Constant intensity shading OR Flat shading 

In this technique particular intensity is calculated for each polygon surface that is all points that lie upon the surface of the polygon are displayed along with similar intensity value.

This constant shading is helpful for quickly displaying the common appearance of a curved surface, although this shading does not convey explicit information regarding the curved surface.
