Among specific topics are measuring strain and lattice rotation in the particle deformation zone, microstructure and texture evolutions in a short-time-annealed interstitial-free steel
, the recrystallization of cold-rolled zirconium single crystals, the influence of finishing rolling variables on austenite recrystallization and grain growth, and the orientation of island and small grains in grain oriented electrical steels.
Among specific topics are the cyclic stability and fatigue performance of ultrafine-grained interstitial-free steel
under mean stress, the cyclic depth-sensing indentation of gold wire, direct comparisons of fatigue behavior in bulk-metallic glasses and crystalline alloys, and a dissipated energy approach to fatigue crack growth in ductile solids and layered materials.
In sections on processing, microstructure characterization, and mechanical and other properties, they consider such topics as the annealing process in severely cold draw pearlitic steelwires, bulk nanocrystalline copper produced by high-energy ball milling, microstructure and properties of ultrafine grained iron by rolling, a microtexture study of warm-rolled high strength interstitial-free steel
sheets, a constitutive model for large plastic deformation of nanocrystalline materials, compression superplasticity of ultrahigh carbon steel in an electric field, and fatigue properties and fatigue cracks of ultra-fine grained copper processed by equal-channel angular pressing.
