In most manufacturing processes, objects of the required shape and size are produced through plastic deformation; sometimes by deforming the product itself through rolling, extrusion, drawing etc, and by deforming the metal removed through grinding, milling and cutting operation. In these processes, a load of appreciable magnitude is applied on the material subjected to deformation, and the plastic flow thus produced is suitably restricted to get the desired shape and size. Equal Channel Angular Pressing (ECAP) is very capable of producing ultrafine grained microstructures and improves the mechanical properties of the deformed materials. The variations in strain path directions during deformation have significantly effect on the physical and mechanical response of distorted metals.
