Plastic Deformation of Nanostructured Materials offers comprehensive analysis on the most important data and results in the field of materials strength and mechanics. This reference systematically examines the special features of the mechanical behavior and corresponding structural mechanisms of crystal structure defects with grain sizes that range from meso- to micro- levels.
Stages of plastic deformation of polycrystalline materials. The structure and mechanical properties of nanocrystals. Main components of the dislocation structure and the role of the dimensional factor. Dislocation structure and internal stress fields. High plastic strains. Effect of ion implantation on structural and phase states and the strength of modified metal surfaces. Grain boundary engineering and superhigh strength of nanocrystals.
