Nanostructuring and nanoengineering of interfaces, phase and grain boundaries of materials have strong influence on the mechanical properties and strength of materials. In this chapter, the potential of interface nanostructuring and its effect to enhance the materials properties are described. Several groups of materials (composites, nanocomposites, nanocrystalline metals, wood) are considered with view on the effect of nanostructured interfaces on their properties, The structures of various nanostructured interfaces and the methods of their modeling are discussed. It is demonstrated that structuring of interfaces is a powerful tool for controlling the material deformation and strength behavior, and allows to enhance the mechanical properties and strength of the materials.
