Deformation Mechanisms and Tensile Superplasticity in Nanocrystalline Materials
Nanocrystalline materials provide a unique opportunity to investigate deformation mechanisms at an extremely fine microstructural scale. An intriguing question has been whether the deformation mechanisms scale with grain size to the nanocrystalline range or whether there are fundamental changes/transitions. The observations of low-temperature and high-strain-rate superplasticity in nanocrystalline materials with some unique features open up new possibilities for scientific and technological advancements.
