  • Dissimilar Channel Angular Pressing (DCAP) is a severe plastic deformation technique to improve the mechanical properties of flat products by producing ultrafine grains. In this study, the changes in the microstructure and mechanical properties of 6061 Al-alloy strips deformed by various numbers of DCAP passes were investigated. Some DCAPed samples were also held at 200 deg. C and 350 deg. C to investigate the effect of post-annealing. Mechanical properties were determined by hardness and tension tests; and microstructural changes were investigated by TEM analysis. Up to a critical level of plastic strain, remarkable improvements have been observed in the strengthmore » and hardness of the severely deformed strips; and the improvements have been explained by variations in grain size, dislocation structure, and formation of subgrains. - Research Highlights: {yields}Dissimilar Channel Angular Pressing (DCAP). {yields}Severe plastic deformation (SPD). {yields}Transmission Electron Microscopy of the 6061 Al alloy. {yields}Mechanical Properties of 6061 Al alloy.« less
  • The microstructural evolutions of a Mg alloy, ZK60, subjected to plastic deformation through equal-channel-angular processing (ECAP) and uniaxial compression were compared using X-ray diffraction (XRD) for both 2 -scans and pole-figure measurements to better understand their specific deformation modes. A larger microstrain was observed in the samples deformed by compression at room temperature, as compared to the samples ECAP-ed at 260C. Crystallographic texture changes due to uniaxial compression suggested a twinning deformation contribution. The texture evolution during ECAP was mapped on a partially processed sample, at locations with different shear-strain values. Microstrain relaxation in ECAP-ed samples indicates that the recovery/more » recrystallization processes compete with the plastic deformation, which was supported by texture features observed in a late stage of the ECAP deformation.« less
  • Equal channel angular extrusion (ECAE) has been used to investigate the formation of submicron grain structures in Al-alloys deformed to ultra-high plastic strains by different strain paths. The different strain paths were obtained by rotating billets through 0, 90, and 190{degree} between each extrusion cycle. High resolution EBSD analysis has been employed to measure the boundary misorientations within the deformation structures. This has highlighted great differences in the evolution of the deformed state, as a function of the strain path, even after effective strains as high as 16. It has been demonstrated that the most effective method of forming amore » submicron grain structure by severe plastic deformation is to maintain a constant strain path. Processing routes involving a 180{degree} rotation reverse the shear strain every second pass and this prevents the build up of significant number of new high angle boundaries. When a sample is processed with an alternative clockwise and anticlockwise 90{degree} rotation, between each extrusion cycle the billet is deformed on two shear planes, each of which experiences half the total strain, compared to the single shear plane when there is no rotation. This reduces the rate of formation of high angle boundaries. With a constant clockwise 90{degree} rotation the sample is also deformed on two alternate shear planes, but the total strain becomes redundant every fourth extrusion cycle. However, in this case each shear is reversed out of sequence after first deforming the billet on the alternate shear plane. This appears to be a much more effective means of forming new high angle boundaries than 180{degree} rotation, where the shear strain is immediately reversed each alternate cycle, but is still less efficient than deformation with a constant strain path.« less
