Abstract: The Severe Plastic Deformation (SPD) has one of the methodologies called Equal Channel Angular Pressing Technique used to attain combination of both strength and ductility while passing the sample through the die without changing its dimension. ECAP entails the deformation of material by simple shear which induces plastic deformation on the material. The current work has been carried out to analyze and identify the total deformation behaviour of pure copper and pure aluminium while processed through the ECAP Die.
