Abstract

In the present paper commercially pure Al was processed by equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) up to 8 passes using route BC. For ECAP processing a proper die set was designed and constructed. Transmission electron microscope (TEM) and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) were used to evaluate the microstructure of the pressed materials. Mechanical properties and the deformation behavior of the ECAP processed material were investigated by the hardness and compression tests. The significant increase in hardness and yield stress after ECAP was discussed by two strengthening mechanisms. Based on these mechanisms, variations of the hardness and yield stress as a function of the pass numbers were related to the calculated dislocation densities and the average boundary spacing. Also it was suggested that the absorption of the dislocations into grain boundaries would be an effective recovery process for the absence of the strain hardening.
