Aluminum alloy 6082 was subjected to equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP), which resulted in an ultra-fine-grained (UFG) microstructure with an average grain size of 0.2-0.4 mu m. There was a pronounced effect of the grain refinement on the strain-rate sensitivity and tensile ductility. The Hart criterion of tensile necking fails to explain the observed ductility of the UFG material at low strain rates. A correlation between the observed stronger-than-expected ductility and a tendency to microshear band formation at low strain rates was established.
