Microstructures of Aluminum and Copper Single Crystals Processed by Equal-Channel Angular Pressing
High purity aluminum (Al) and copper (Cu) single crystals of different crystallographic orientations were processed for one pass by equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP). The deformed structures were examined using orientation imaging microscopy (OIM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). This paper examines the experimental results in terms of the values of the shear factors based on simple shear theory.
