Experiments and finite element simulations were conducted to measure the temperature increase in processing disc samples by high-pressure torsion. Aluminum, copper, iron and molybdenum were selected as model materials. The temperature increases at the early stages of straining but saturates to steady-state levels at large strains. The increase of temperature is proportional to the hardness and rotation speed and is higher at higher imposed pressures and is somewhat higher at larger distances from the disc center.
