Nanomaterials by Severe Plastic Deformation IV
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
This special collection comprises 175 peer-reviewed articles on “Nanomaterials by Severe Plastic Deformation”. This large number of papers is a convincing demonstration of the relevance of bulk ultrafine grained and nanostructured materials, produced by severe plastic deformation, to a wide range of researchers and engineers. In fact, this community is growing, and the total number of articles in this edition is larger than that in the 2006 edition. The fact that the authors hail from 27 countries also reflects the truly world-wide activity in this field.
Significant progress has been made in this field; including all aspects of NanoSPD, such as an increased understanding of the mechanisms underlying grain refinement by severe plastic deformation, characterisation of the properties of SPD-processed materials, improvements in processing techniques, and their application. All of these aspects are reflected by the contents of this book.
The editors are confident that the work offers a thoroughly representative snapshot of the state-of-the-art of this field of research and will also constitute a comprehensive reference resource. The book also offers an insight into the possible directions in which this field may move in the future, and into possible routes to its commercialisation.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: This two-volume publication collects 175 peer-reviewed articles from the Fourth International Conference on Nanomaterials by Severe Plastic Deformation, held in August of 2008 in Goslar, Germany. The editors, who believe the proceedings to provide a "pretty representative snapshot of the state of the art in this field of research," present the papers sections devoted to recent advances and commercialization pathways; processing; enhanced plasticity; characterization; steels and light alloys; creep, fatigue, and damage mechanisms; thermal stability and other physical materials; and modeling. Some examples of specific topics include outstanding mechanical properties in materials with a nano/meso hybrid microstructure, influence of reversible hydrogen alloying on nanostructure formation in titanium alloys subjected to severe plastic deformation, nanustructured materials by twist extrusion and high pressure torsion, features of deformation behavior of ultra-fine grained titanium and aluminum alloys under conditions of high strain rate superplasticity, use of ring sample for high-pressure torsion and microstructural evolution with equivalent strain, mechanical behavior of nanocrystalline palladium at high strains and high strain rates, shear induced low- and high-angle boundary characterization using Kikuchi bands in transmission electron microscopy, features of the structure development and the deformation process in zirconium-based alloys under radial forging, activation volume in fine grained metals from stress relaxation and nano-indentation, regularities of deformation and fracture of steels subjected to equal channel angular pressing and thermal processing, and effect of trace impurities on high-cycle fatigue damage of ultrafine copper processed by equal channel angular pressing.
