Mechanical Behaviors of Gradient Nanostructured Materials: Ke Lu1; 1Institute of Metal Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences
    Gradient nanostructured materials are structurally characterized by a graded spatial variation of microstructural length scale from nanometers to the macro-scale. Such a unique architecture enables fundamentally different mechanical responses in the gradient nanostructured materials compared with their homogeneous nanostructured counterparts. In this talk, experimental studies over the past years on mechanical properties and performance of gradient nanostructured materials will be summarized and reviewed, including tensile strength and ductility, work-hardening, fatigue behavior, strain-induced surface roughening, as well as friction and wear properties. Plastic deformation mechanism of the gradient nanostructures will be analyzed in comparison with the homogeneous nanostructures. Future perspectives and major challenges on this novel nanostructured material will be addressed as well.
