Paper Title:
Strengthening and Toughening Effect on Tungsten Subjected to Multiple ECAP
  Abstract

This paper presents the research results of the grain refining effect on the ductile-to- brittle transition temperature (DBTT) of commercial purity tungsten. The as-received tungsten was subjected to eight passes of equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP) at decreasing temperatures from 1300 to 1150 °C. According to optical and TEM microscopy the average grain size was refined considerably from ~80 μm to ~1 μm. The mechanical tensile tests, carried out at various temperatures for the tungsten samples, showed that DBTT decreased approximately 80 °C as a result of microstructure refinement by ECAP, at the same time the strength also increased 50-100 % by grain refinement. SEM observation of the fractures confirmed the mechanical testing results.
