Austenitic stainless steels are widely used in various fields of engineering and biomedical applications. From this point of view, the improvement of their mechanical properties is of great importance. This can be achieved by grain refinement using one of the severe plastic deformation (SPD) methods. It has been recently shown that hydrostatic extrusion (HE) is one of efficient SPD methods. The aim of this work was to study mechanical properties and tribological characteristics of the 316 LVM austenitic stainless steel subjected to HE process.
