Electromagnetic forming was used to compare the effects of high strain rate on the microstructure and texture of oxygen free high conductivity (OFHC) copper and Glidcop Al-15. OFHC is pure copper whereas Glidcop Al-15 is an oxide dispersion strengthen (ODS) copper containing 0.15 wt% alumina (Al2O3) finely dispersed in the copper matrix. Both have high thermal and electrical conductivity, and excellent cold working characteristics. However, there is a remarkable differences in the deformation behavior of the two variants. Microhardness, electrical resistivity, and microstructural evaluation by electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM), are some of the characterization tools used.
