High-temperature ausforming, one of the most important ausforming processes, provides best combination of strength\, ductility and toughness by deformation at austenitic state and subsequent transformation. Researchers have been paying popular attentions on this process since it appears. Especially in the recent few decades, the new process has made great progress and becomes a new sophisticated strengthening process for metals and alloys both in theory and in practice. The paper synthesizes the recently developments of the process and predicts its future tendency.
