Effect of Deformation Route on the Mechanical Properties of CP-Ti Deformed by Equal Channel Angular Pressing (ECAP)
The effect of deformation route on the mechanical properties of grade-1 CP-Ti deformed by equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP) was studied using tensile testing, TEM observation, Xray pole figure measurement, and ODF calculation. Route Bc showed high yield stress and comparatively large uniform elongation, thus high ultimate tensile strength, because of its fine grain structure with high angle grain boundary. The reason for this was because of the occurrence of prismatic slip in route Bc, in addition to the commonly occurring basal slip. Route C showed surprisingly high yield stress despite of its unfavorable grain structure because of the significant contribution of texture hardening.
