Annealing Texture of ECAE Processed Copper


Article Preview

The paper deals with the evolution of recrystallization texture during annealing of Equal Channel Angular Extrusion (ECAE) processed copper with different deformation texture that may evolve as a result of different routes of ECAE. The deformation and recrystallization texture components have been separated and corresponding texture analysis has been carried out. An attempt has been made to understand the origin of recrystallization texture.
