In an attempt to achieve the high strength requirements for modem applications, today's advanced metallic materials are enhanced through strengthening mechanisms such as solid solution strengthening or cold workmg. The disadvantage associated with these mechanisms is the subsequent loss in ductility. This reduction also has a significant effect on the formability of materials. For example this is a particular disadvantage in the aerospace industry were the curvature of sheet components are limited by their formability. This project investigates an alternative strengthening mechanism in an attempt to maintain ductility.
