Abstract:

This chapter discusses the utilization of nanotechnology to greatly enhance the properties of steels, by modifying the chemical composition and/or microstructure of bulk material or surface layer. It starts with a brief discussion of the relevant knowledge base, including: microstructure and chemical composition of steel, influence of nano-modification and processing approaches, and modeling of nanocomposite steel. Then, it provides a review of technological advances in ...
