Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Metallurgy
  • Thermodynamics

His main research concerns Composite material, Metallurgy, Severe plastic deformation, Ductility and Deformation. In general Composite material study, his work on Carbon nanotube, Ultimate tensile strength, Strain hardening exponent and Deformation mechanism often relates to the realm of Back stress, thereby connecting several areas of interest. The study incorporates disciplines such as Nanostructured materials and Grain growth in addition to Severe plastic deformation.

His Ductility research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Tensile testing and Metal. His research in Deformation tackles topics such as Crystal twinning which are related to areas like Condensed matter physics and Nucleation. His study in Grain size is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Annealing and Nanocrystalline material.

His most cited work include:

  • Producing bulk ultrafine-grained materials by severe plastic deformation (1141 citations)
  • Paradox of strength and ductility in metals processed by severe plastic deformation (894 citations)
  • Deformation twinning in nanocrystalline materials (683 citations)
