In this study, two Severe Plastic Deformation (SPD) methods, which significantly improve the
mechanical properties of materials by causing significant improvements in the microstructure of materials,
are comparatively analyzed. The study compares the most well-known and commonly used Equal Channel
Angular Pressing (ECAP) and Multi-Directional Forging (MDF) methods. Both methods have significant
advantages and disadvantages in terms of application and their effects on the material. In this study, which
is a finite element analysis (FEA) study, both methods will be modelled and numerically analyzed, and the
results will be examined comparatively. Therefore, the necessary application forces and changes in material
strain values will be compared for both methods.
