Synopsis

Structural materials with high strength and high ductility are desirable because high strength allows structural components to carry high load and high ductility is essential to prevent catastrophic failure. The combination of high strength and high ductility has never been achieved in coarse‑grained metallic meterials but has been realized in some nanostructured metallic materials. This project aims to understand the mechanisms responsible for the combined high strength and high ductility in nanostructured metals and alloys. The results obtained from this research will be very important for guiding the structural design of materials with high strength and high ductility which will find a wide range of civil and defence applications.
