Bulk Nanostructured Materials
This book presents the most recent results in the area of bulk nanostructured materials and new trends in their severe plastic deformation (SPD) processing, where these techniques are now emerging from the domain of laboratory-scale research into the commercial production of various bulk nanomaterials. Special emphasis is placed on an analysis of the effect of nanostructures in materials fabricated by SPD on mechanical properties (strength and ductility, fatigue strength and life, superplasticity) and functional behavior (shape memory effects, magnetic and electric properties), as well as the numerous examples of their innovative applications. There is a high innovation potential for industrial applications of bulk nanomaterials for structural use (materials with extreme strength) as well as for functional applications such as nanomagnets, materials for hydrogen storage, thermoelectric materials, superconductors, catalysts, and biomedical implants. RUSLAN Z. VALIEV, PhD, is Professor and Director of the Institute of Physics of Advanced Materials at Ufa State Aviation Technical University. He is also Head of Laboratory on Mechanics of Bulk Nanomaterials at St. Petersburg State University and Chairman of the International NanoSPD Steering Committee (www.nanospd.org). ALEXANDER P. ZHILYAEV, PhD, is Principal Research Scientist for the Institute for Metals Superplasticity at the Russian Academy of Sciences. He is also Senior Research Fellow on the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton. TERENCE G. LANGDON, PhD, is Professor of Materials Science at the University of Southampton. He is also the William E. Leonhard Professor of Engineering at the University of Southern California and founding member of the International NanoSPD Steering Committee. The authors, through their numerous pioneering studies, have played a major role in the development and use of SPD techniques to process bulk nanostructured materials.
