Abstract: When the geometry of metal deformed part is scaled down to micro-scale, the understanding and prediction of micro deformation behaviour becomes difficult. This is because the conventional material deformation models are no longer valid in micro-scale due to the size effect, which affects the deformation behaviour in micro plastic deformation, and thus leveraging the traditional knowledge of plastic deformation from macro-scale to micro-scale is not meaningful. In this paper, the size effect on micro-scale plastic deformation and frictional phenomenon are investigated via micro-cylindrical compression test, micro-ring compression test and Finite Element (FE) simulation. The experimental results show the occurrence of various size-effect related deformation phenomena, including the decrease of flow stress and the increases of: (a) irrational local deformation, (b) the amount of springback, and (c) the interfacial friction stress with the decreasing specimen size. The research further verifies that the established surface layer models, with the identified surface grain, the internal grain properties and the measured friction coefficients, are able to predict micro deformation behaviour. The research thus provides an in-depth understanding of size effect on deformation and frictional behaviours in micro-scale plastic deformation.
