As nanostructured materials advance, their potential for applications to everyday life grows. Austenitic steels with low-stacking-fault energy, which experience twinning as a primary deformation mechanism leading to nanoscale layered structures, can be classified in this group of materials. This overview summarizes recent experimental findings and modeling efforts to determine how these nanostructures and microstructures affect mechanical response and texture evolution.
