Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

UFG Al 1070, produced by two-turn, S-channel ECAP, was side upset and rolled to obtain a 1 mm thick sheet. 1mm in diameter cylindrical billets were micro-blanked from the UFG sheet and, for comparison purposes, also from a coarse grained commercially rolled Al 1050 sheet. After calibration the billets were used for backward extrusion of micro-cups. The UFG structure was retained during all these operations, which appeared to be not much different for the two materials. Tooling issues have to be addressed and further investigation is required to account for substantial changes in the strain path for the UFG material.
