Abstract

Samples of high purity aluminum were deformed to different levels of strain using the procedure of equal-channel angular (ECA) pressing in which an intense plastic strain is introduced by pressing a sample through a special die. The results demonstrate the potential for using the ECA pressing technique to reduce the grain size from approximately 1 mm initially to a final equiaxed array of grains having a size close to approximately 1 μm.
