Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The special issue focuses on the processing of metallic materials by methods of severe plastic deformation (SPD) in order to obtain ultrafine-grained (UFG) microstructures. On the one hand side, emphasis is laid on new developments in severe plastic deformation techniques, including new processing methods, advances in modeling and simulation of the severe plastic deformation processes, prediction of the microstructural evolution during SPD-processing and industrial up-scaling strategies. On the other hand side, the correlation between SPD-processing parameters, the microstructure and the resulting materials properties paired with new approaches in modeling and simulation of UFG-materials behaviour are in focus of this issue. It will cover the interaction between the obtained microstructure and the mechanical properties in UFG materials, strategies to enhance the microstructural stability, new developments of tailoring/grading and functionalization of materials by SPD-processing as well as principal investigations on the deformation mechanisms in UFG materials related to SPD-processing.
