    Abstract

    This paper describes experiments in which high purity copper single crystals of two different orientations were processed for one pass by equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP) and the deformed structures were examined using optical microscopy (OM), orientation imaging microscopy (OIM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The first single crystal (0° specimen) was oriented within the entrance channel of the die so that the {111} slip plane and the 〈110〉 slip direction were parallel to the theoretical shear plane and shear direction, respectively. The second crystal (20° specimen) was oriented with the {111} slip plane and the 〈110〉 slip direction rotated by 20° in a clockwise sense from the theoretical shear plane and shear direction, respectively. For the 0° specimen, after passing through the shear plane there were two crystallographic orientations representing the initial orientation and an orientation rotated by 60° in a counter-clockwise sense from the initial orientation. For the 20° specimen, there was an orientation rotated by 20° in a counter-clockwise sense from the initial orientation after passing through the shear plane.
