Texture Evolution in FCC Metals during Equal Channel Angular Extrusion (ECAE) as a Function of Stacking Fault Energy
FCC metals with different stacking fault energy (SFE), namely Al, Cu and Ag have been investigated for the evolution of crystallographic texture during ECAE deformation using Route A. Different materials with different SFE result in their characteristic textures. The results have been analysed on the basis of microstructural features and related established concepts on texture evolution in FCC metals during other deformation modes.
