The last 2–3 decades were the period of creation of ultrafine-grained (UFG) or even nanostructured metals and alloys by methods of severe plastic deformation (SPD). On this path, researchers have achieved a tremendous success: new materials with ultrafine-grained and nano structure have shown not only improved mechanical properties due to their fine grain structure, but also improved functional properties. The greatest successes were achieved for metals and alloys using classical or traditional SPD methods: equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP) and high-pressure torsion (HPT). Approximately 15 years ago, the mission was to industrialize these methods to obtain bulk nanostructured materials. This turned out to be not an easy task and could not be completed. In parallel, the researchers tried to develop other (alternative) methods of severe plastic deformation, different from the traditional SPD methods, to obtain bulk materials with UFG or nano structure. More than two dozen of such methods are available today and allow to obtain structure and properties of metals and alloys, which are close to those achieved by ECAP or HPT. The advantage of new methods is that they can be easily implemented at the industrial level. In contrast to ECAP or HPT materials, the data on the microstructure and properties of metals and alloys obtained by non-conventional SPD methods are poorly systematized. This Special Issue proposes to correct this deficiency and will consist of reports on the microstructure and properties (mechanical and functional) of metallic materials obtained by non-traditional methods of SPD. Special attention will be paid to asymmetric rolling methods and continuous close-die forging. These two methods have been developed in a way that can be easily scaled up to an industrial level.
