Nanotwin-mediated deformation in metals
Center for X-mechanics, Department of Engineering mechanics, Zhejiang University
The introduction of nanoscale coherent twin boundaries (TBs) can be an effective strategy to achieve desirable strength while maintaining substantial ductility and work hardening of metallic materials. In this talk, I will present our recent studies on twin-mediated deformation in metals, including extra strengthening in gradient nanotwinned metals, extreme shear deformability of twin boundary, and twin-mediated dynamic adjustment of GB mobility in nanocrystals.
