Tubular pure copper grain refining by tube cyclic extrusion–compression (TCEC) as a severe plastic deformation technique

Tube Cyclic Extrusion–Compression (TCEC) method is a novel severe plastic deformation technique developed for grain refining of cylindrical tubes to ultrafine grained (UFG)/nanostructured ones. In this method, tubes are fully constrained and deformed between chamber and mandrel with a small neck zon...
