The e?ects of alloying and severe plastic deformation methods on the strength and ductility of Cu–Zn alloys were systematically investigated. Alloying decreased the grain size and increased the twinning capability. Changing from equal-channel angular press to high-pressure torsion decreased the grain size and improved the ductility. The e?ects on ductility are explained in terms of the different in?uences of grain size and twinning capability
