Texture Analysis of Nanostructured Metals Produced by Severe Plastic Deformation
In the present work the processes of crystallographic texture formation during severe plastic deformation (SPD), which has been carried out in the conditions of high imposed pressures (up to 6 GPa) and extremely large cumulative deformation degree (e up to 1÷100 and more) in pure metals, are investigated. It is shown that the processes of nanostructure formation as a result of SPD are accompanied not only by known processes such as a fragmentation, extension of misorientation angles, character modification of dislocation density, but also by the formation of deformation textures. The deformation textures, having been formed as a result of SPD are analyzed for the examples of FCC Cu, BCC W and HPC Ti, depending on a cumulative deformation degree and SPD scheme. The obtained crystallographic texture data are used for the analysis of the nanostructured state formation regularities.
