Texture Evolution during ECAP and Subsequent Annealing of an AlMg1Mn0.14 Alloy
The texture evolution during Equal-Channel Angular Pressing (ECAP) of an AlMg1Mn0.14 alloy was investigated. The material was subjected up to eight passes with a 90° die angle using route A. This resulted in an equivalent strain of 9.2. The obtained ECAP textures were compared to conventional simple shear textures. In order to investigate the thermal stability of severely deformed material the samples were annealed at several temperatures. The texture evolution during heat treatments was analysed.
