Layered structures characterize metals and alloys deformed to high strain. The morphology is typical lamellar or fibrous and the interlamellar spacing can span several length scales down to the nanometer dimension. The layered structures can be observed in bulk or in surface regions, which is shown by the way of examples of
different processing routes: friction, wire drawing, shot peening, high pressure torsion and rolling. The interlamellar spacing reaches from 5-10 nanometers to about one micrometer and the analysis will cover structural evolution, strengthening parameters and strength-structure relationships. Finally, the results will be discussed based on universal principles for the evolution of microstructure and properties during plastic deformation of metals and alloys from low to high strain.
