The plastic deformation occurs in steels during metal forming processing such as rolling, forging, high-pressure torsion, etc. which modify mechanical properties of materials through the grain refinement, and the shape change of objects. Several phenomena in the scope of plastic deformation, such as hardening, recovery, and recrystallization are of great importance in designing thermomechanical processing. During the last decades, a focus of research groups has been devoted particularly to the field of metals processing of steel parts through plastic deformation combined with specific heat treatment conditions. In this review chapter, the current status of research work on the role of plastic deformation during manufacturing is illuminated.
