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.
