These proceedings focus on all aspects of the science and technology of ultrafine-grained materials produced by Severe Plastic Deformation (SPD) techniques. Topics include SPD processing and SPD-processed materials, processing and microstructures, microstructural evolution, mechanical and physical properties, superplasticity, computational and analytical modeling, new SPD technologies and advances, structural applications, etc. This book will be a useful reference for scientists, engineers, postdocs, and students working with nanostructured materials. From 2004 TMS Annual Meeting which was held in Charlotte, North Carolina, March 14-18, 2004.
