Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Pure Nickel Processed by Severe Plastic Deformation
Microstructure and mechanical properties of pure nickel processed by high pressure torsion (HPT) and equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) have been investigated in the present paper. The uniformity of microstructure and misorientation angles in the SPD samples were studied using transmission electron microscopy and electron back scattering diffraction. Microstructural requirements for achivement of high strength and ductility in SPD metals are discussed.
