    Bulk Nanostructured Materials: Fundamentals and Applications
    Ruslan Z. Valiev, Alexander P. Zhilyaev, Terence G. Langdon
    John Wiley & Sons, 2013
    Pages: 456
    ISBN 978-1-11-874257-0

    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 (

    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.

    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.

    This book focuses on functional aspects of nanostructured materials that have a high relevance to immediate applications, such as catalysis, energy harvesting, energy storage, optical properties and surface functionalization via self-assembly. Additionally, there are chapters devoted to massive nanostructured materials and composites and covering basic properties and requirements of this new class of engineering materials. Especially the issues concerning stability, reliability and mechanical performance are mandatory aspects that need to be regarded carefully for any nanostructured engineering material.
