Nanomaterials (NMs) usually exist in non-equilibrium state. Thus, the NMs stability in extreme environments is a very crucial problem.Here, this overview is devoted to mainly current researches of the NMs behavior under various mechanical actions. The effect information connected with the cyclic loading, equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP), high-pressure torsion (HPT), and other mechanical actions (including combined those) on the structure, phase transitions, and properties of NMs, is generalized and considered in detail. In addition, some theoretical approaches and modeling are described. The importance of additional studies is underlined.
