The accommodation of severe plastic deformation in impact crater formation, ballistic rod flow and penetration in thick targets, shaped charge formation, and a variety of friction-stir welding and processing is shown to occur by microstructure refinement, particularly dynamic recrystallization in the development of localized or overlapping adiabatic shear bands. Optical metallography and transmission electron microscopy observations of solid-state flow in adiabatic shear zones are compared to illustrate these mechanisms which can often involve intermixed microstructural regimes composed of recovery, recrystallization, and grain growth phenomena.
