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 method of treating a metal billet to change its mechanical and/or physical properties by reducing grain size, the method involving feeding the billet through a first passage and into a second passage inclined to the first passage characterised by deforming the billet by repeatedly loading and unloading it using at list one reciprocating die at a junction between the first and second passages in order to process the whole length of the billet, wherein the reciprocating die defines part of the second passage and the first and second passages constrain the billet in a direction perpendicular to a flow plane of the billet, thereby to cause plane strain of the billet.
