%X A new computational method based on MATLAB was used to study the effect of different parameters on the homogeneity of composites produced by a severe plastic deformation technique known as accumulative roll bonding. For a higher number of passes, the degree of particle agglomeration and clustering decreased, and an appreciable homogeneity was obtained in both longitudinal and transverse directions. Moreover, it was found that the rolling temperature does not have any tangible effect on the distribution of particles. Furthermore, it was shown that while faster homogeneity can be obtained in the transverse direction by a cross accumulative roll bonding process, there is not any significant difference between homogeneity of particle distribution between this technique and other routes. In fact, after enough passes, the homogeneity level in all processing methods tends to a common value. Finally, the evolution of the mechanical properties of the composites sheets based on the work hardening, composite strengthening, grain refinement at high accumulative roll bonding cycles, and bonding between particles and the matrix was also briefly discussed.
