Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A new way of severely deforming ductile metals in order to refine their microstructure is proposed. It is called incremental angular splitting and originates from the idea of orthogonal cutting. It is intended to intensify plastic deformation in the cutting zone and lead to faster refinement of the microstructure. A laboratory experiment carried out on Al 1070 has proved the technical feasibility of the process. As the first indication of process capability, micro hardness measurements have been used to compare incremental angular splitting and incremental equal channel angular pressing.
