An AA6060 Al-Mg-Si alloy was used to investigate the microstructure evolution on X, Y and Z planes after processing by Incremental Equal Channel Angular Pressing (IECAP) at room temperature after 1 and 4 passes. The basic microstructural parameters (mean grain size, grain boundary statistics) were evaluated.
