Özet

As cast ZA-27 alloy was subjected to equal channel angular extrusion (ECAE) with up to four passes using three different processing routes, and its mechanical properties (strength, hardness, ductility and extrusion load) were evaluated. The changes in the microstructure were also investigated. The ECAE was found to be quite effective in enhancing the mechanical properties of ZA-27 alloy. The strength and hardness of the alloys increased after the first ECAE pass followed by a gradual decrease with further passes for all processing routes. The elongation to failure, however, exceptionally increased with increase in the number of passes for all processing routes. Combined high strength and good ductility were obtained in the alloy after the first pass. The strength and maximum extrusion load showed similar trends with the number of passes for all processing routes.
