The results are presented of experimental examination of the effect of the grain size on the spoliation of copper. Levels of the loading pressure, corresponding to various stages of spollation, were determined for two initial states characterized by a mean grain size of 0.29 and 1.62 mm. The results show that for the material with the smaller grain these levels are approximately 0.2 GPa higher than for the material with the larger grain size.
