Abstract

Superplasticity is the ability of materials, e.g. metals and alloys, ceramics, intermetallics, metal-/ceramic-matrix composites, dispersion-strengthened alloys, nanostructured materials, and bulk metallic glasses, to undergo near-neck-free tensile elongation of several hundred percent when subjected to a small stress within certain strain rate and temperature ranges.
