Surface Abrasive Torsion for Improved Mechanical Properties and Microstructure

A novel process of discrete surface abrasion during simple torsion (ST), named “surface abrasive torsion (SAT),” is proposed to overcome the limitation of ST, i.e., insufficient strain for severe plastic deformation (SPD) due to cracks initiated on the surface, by removing the roughened surface region. The effect of SAT on delayed crack initiation was explained using finite element simulations. Larger shear deformation applicable to the specimen in SAT than ST was demonstrated experimentally.
