Inhomogeneity of Microstructure and Creep of ECAP Aluminium
High purity (99.99%) pure aluminium processed by equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) was examined in terms of the ECAP microstructure inhomogeneity and its creep behaviour. The results indicate that an inhomogeneity of the ECAP microstructure in mesoscopic scale may influence the creep behaviour of the pressed material.
