Long-Length Ultrafine-Grained Titanium Rods Produced by ECAP-Conform
A new technique of continuous severe plastic deformation (SPD)-processing, i.e. ECAP (equal channel angular pressing)-Conform is applied for the first time to produce long-length rods of commercial purity Ti with ultrafine-grained structure. The paper reports on the results of investigation of the microstructure and mechanical properties of Ti rods processed by ECAPConform and the following wire drawing.
