Processing, Strength and Ductility of Bulk Nanostructured Metals Produced by Sever Plastic Deformation: An Overview
Nanostructured metals which have nano-scale microstructure are classified into ultrafine grained metals and nanocrystalline metals. In recent years, many processing techniques have been developed for producing nanostructured metals. Nanostructured metals possess ultrahigh strength but the low ductility is an important limitation on development of these materials for structural applications. This paper overviews various methods of producing nanostructured metals and recent investigations of strength and ductility of nanostructured metals processed by sever plastic deformation.
