The equal channel angular processing (ECAP) is a severe plastic deformation technique which can produce ultrafine-grained (UFG) alloy. This paper investigate the static and dynamic behaviour of ECAPed OFHC-Cu to evaluate possibility of its application to defence industries. Tensile tests were carried out at two different strain rate (10-3/s, 1/s) using digital image correlation (DIC) technique. High strain rate experiments were conducted using the split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB). The results were compared with forged OFHC-Cu and additional heat treated OFHC-Cu after processed by ECAP. Flow stress and strain sensitivity of ECAPed OFHC-Copper were increased compare to forged OFHC-Copper. After ECAPed copper heat treatment, the yield strength decreased with increasing of the average grain size. And numerical simulation of ECAPed copper shaped charge was performed using Autodyn hydrodynamic code.
