Pure Ni Single Crystal of Cube Orientation Deformed by Equal Channel Angular Extrusion
Texture and microstructure were investigated after 1 pass equal channel angular extrusion (ECAE) of a single crystal cube oriented Ni billet. Neutron and X-ray diffraction were used to determine global and local textures, respectively. To investigate the fine scale microstructural features EBSD was used. Substantial variations in texture and microstructure resulting from different efficiencies in the shearing process were locally recorded through the billet height.
