Nanostructuring of metallic materials by spd processing for advanced properties

Ruslan Valiev


During the past decade, fabrication of bulk nanostructured metals and alloys using severe plastic deformation (SPD) has been evolving as a rapidly advancing direction of nanomaterials science and technology aimed at developing materials with new mechanical and functional properties for advanced applications. The principle of these developments is based on grain refinement down to the nanoscale level via various SPD techniques. This paper is focused on recent studies of SPD processing regimes and routes enabling fabrication of ultrafine-grained metals and alloys. The paper also considers nanostructural features of SPD-processed materials that are responsible for enhancement of their properties.
