Research and Markets, the leading source for international market research
and market data, has announced the addition of "Nanomaterials
by Severe Plastic Deformation" guide to their offering.
Selected, peer reviewed papers from The 4th International Conference on Nanomaterials
by Severe Plastic Deformation, Goslar, Germany, August 18-22, 2008
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.
