Results of a study of the structure and mechanical properties of ultrafine-grained alloy AM60V obtained by the method of equal channel angular pressing and subjected to additional warm rolling are presented. The mean grain size, the size of segregated particles, and the special features of the texture of the alloy are determined using the methods of transmission electron microscopy, electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD), and x-ray diffraction analysis. The strength and ductility characteristics are studied by tensile mechanical tests. The detected strong anisotropy of the mechanical properties of the alloy is associated with formation of crystallographic texture.
