Low temperature mechanical characteristics of different purity nanostructured
titanium produced by the equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) method have been studied
under active deformation (quasistatic uniaxial tension and compression) and under
Values of the yield stress and the uniform plasticity at 300, 77, and 4.2K for nanostructured (NS) and polycrystalline coarse-grained (CG) titanium of different commercial purity have been compared. The failure type of Grade 2 Ti under tension and compression has been established.
