Summary

Tests were undertaken to evaluate the significance of performing equal-channel angular pressing using a die having an angle of 60° between the two channels. The tests were conducted using samples of pure aluminum and an Al-1% Mg-0.2% Sc alloy. The results lead to the conclusion that the mechanical properties of samples in the as-pressed condition are similar for both 60° and 90° dies provided the data are compared at the same equivalent strains.
