Substantial grain refinement, to the submicrometer or nanometer level,
may be achieved in bulk metallic alloys through processing using
techniques associated with the introduction of severe plastic
deformation (SPD). Procedures available for SPD include Equal-Channel
Angular Pressing (ECAP) where a sample is pressed through a die
constrained within a channel bent through an angle at, or approaching,
90 degrees and High-Pressure Torsion (HPT) where the sample, in the
form of a thin disk, is subjected to a high pressure and concurrent
torsional straining. This paper reviews the two processes of ECAP and
HPT and describes representative results. It is demonstrated that
processing by SPD provides a potential for achieving exceptional
properties in relatively large bulk solids.
