An established dislocation density related, one-internal variable model was used, with some modifications, as a basis for modeling the mechanical response of aluminum alloy AA6111. In addition to conventional rolling, equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) was used to produce a wide range of grain sizes, down to the submicrometer scale. The samples were heat treated before and after both processes to optimize tensile ductility. Implementation of the model to uniaxial tensile response of the conventionally rolled and the ECAP processed materials confirmed its good predictive capability. The model was further used to formulate simple relations between true uniform strain and the constitutive parameters that allow reliable prediction of the uniform elongation.
