Effects of Severe Plastic Deformation: Mechanical Properties and Beyond
In this talk, a range of effects produced by severe plastic deformation will be considered. In addition to the mechanical property improvements, such as enhanced strength and more favourable conditions for superplasticity, SPD will be shown to produce a much broader spectrum of beneficial effects. Case studies demonstrating accelerated kinetics of nitriding of steels and hydrogenation of Mg alloys will be presented. Further possible applications of SPD techniques will be discussed.
