Facile route to bulk ultrafine-grain steels for high strength and ductility

Bulk ultrafine-grained steel is prepared by an approach that involves the rapid production of coherent, disordered nanoprecipitates, which restrict grain growth but do not interfere with twinning or dislocation motion, resulting in high strength and ductility.Facile route to bulk ultrafine-grain steels for high strength and ductility
