Nano-crystalline metals performance of defects and mechanisms of plastic deformation and conventional polycrystalline are completely divergent in behavior and its perfor-mance. This paper discusses about grain boundary and dislocation mediated deformation me-chanisms in Nano-crystalline metals. The plots are for burger vectors of single value, Gaussian and uniform characteristics considering various parameters such as elastic constants, plasticity, loading condition and uncertainty quantification.
