Constrained groove pressing (CGP) is a new severe plastic deformation method suitable for producing ultra-fine grained sheet metals. Based on Taguchi optimization method, the influence of processing parameters such as groove width, groove angle, friction coefficient and deformation rate on deformation homogeneity of constrained groove pressing (CGP) was studied numerically utilizing DEFORM-3D. A multi-pass CGP was carried out on 1060 commercially pure aluminium, copper and Ni sheets. Through a series of experimental research, the evolution of microstructure, tensile properties, forming load, and die parameters during the process was investigated.
