The influence of thermoplastic processes through severe plastic deformations carried out at ambient temperature and through rolling carried out at cryogenic temperature on the recovery for two types of materials was investigated. As experimental materials, there were used oxygen free high conductivity copper and FeSi steel presenting materials with middle and high stacking fault energy, respectively. Both materials have been previously investigated, however mainly considering their material properties. In this study, oxygen free high conductivity Cu was processed by 13 passes through equal channel angular rolling which belongs to the severe plastic deformations group of methods. The rolling of FeSi steel at ambient and cryogenic temperatures was performed using a laboratory duo rolling mill, samples were rolled only by one pass. The aim of this study was to insert the strain to the materials with different stacking fault energy (middle and high) under ambient and cryogenic thermal conditions, respectively, and subsequently to observe the influence of stored energy on structural recovery of materials through differential scanning calorimetry method. This study implies that the recovery process characterized by the mobility of structural defects begins earlier for FeSi steel compared to oxygen free high conductivity Cu.
