The present work has demonstrated that steels continue to evolve to compete with other lightweight materials, especially for automotive applications. There are many different approaches to improving the strength-ductility combination of steels and in the current review the focus has been on developing and understanding ultrafine and nanostructures in steel. This has been supported by the ongoing development of high throughput and high resolution characterisation techniques that allow us to develop enhanced understanding of these microstrucrures and their evolution.
