Paper Title:
The Evolution of Homogeneity during Processing of Aluminium Alloys by HPT
  Abstract

Disks of a commercial purity aluminium Al-1050 alloy and Al-1%Mg alloy were processed by high-pressure torsion (HPT) at room temperature for up to a maximum of 5 turns under a pressure of 6 GPa. Following processing, hardness measurements were recorded across the surfaces of the disks. These measurements showed low values of hardness at the center and high values near the edges of the disks and the hardness increased in both alloys with increasing numbers of turns. The evolution of homogeneity in hardness was rapid in Al-1050 compared to the Al-1%Mg alloy. After 5 turns of HPT under a pressure of 6 GPa, the hardness was fully homogeneous across the total surface of the Al-1050 disk whereas there was a region of lower hardness around the center of the Al-1%Mg disk. The results reveal the significant difference between both alloys where the higher rate of recovery in the Al-1050 alloy leads to a rapid evolution of the hardness homogeneity.
