Severe Plastic Deformation Technology, edited by A. Rosochowski, published by Whittles Publishing, Scotland, 2017.
Publisher link: http://www.whittlespublishing.com/Severe_Plastic_Deformation_Technology
The book is first to cover the engineering aspects of severe plastic deformation (SPD) technology used to refine grain structure in metallic materials. The fundamentals of both the well-known and novel SPD processes are explained and the engineering know-how required for successful implementation of these processes revealed. The principles of each SPD technique are explained and insight provided into the mechanics of material deformation and microstructural changes. The equipment used for SPD processing is described including machines and tools. The book is intended for students and researchers working in the field of refining grain structure of metals by SPD. By explaining the engineering aspects of SPD, it enables the best SPD process to be chosen for a given application thus avoiding time-consuming and wasteful trials. It also encourages metal forming researchers and material scientists to work together in order to improve existing and develop new SPD processes. Finally, this book is also for industrial engineers, who will ultimately be using the SPD technology for mass production of metals with refined grain structure and improved properties.

COMPLAS 2017 takes place on September 5-7, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain.
The objectives of COMPLAS 2017 are to address both the theoretical bases for the solution of plasticity problems and the numerical algorithms necessary for efficient and robust computer implementation. COMPLAS 2017 aims to act as a forum for practitioners in the field to discuss recent advances and identify future research directions.
