Finite element method was adopted to investigate the effects of friction in a novel equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) based procedure which can handles the strip metal ECAP procedure. The simulation results show that the friction plays a decisive role on the present novel ECAP procedure other than the negative friction effect on conventional ECAP process. The adequate friction and strictly controlled channel size are the warranty of a successful performance in this unique ECAP procedure.
