Paper Title:
Study of Temperature Evolution and Metal Flow of 6005A Aluminum Alloy during Indirect Extrusion
  Abstract

A numerical model has been build up to study temperature evolution and metal flow for the indirect extrusion of 6005A aluminium alloy. Model validation was carried out by comparison between experiments and simulations. Results show a good agreement with each other. The influence of the extrusion parameters on the profile temperature and metal flow were studied according to the real industrialized process. It was found that the profile temperature increases with the ram speed as well as the peak load of the total press force. However, a too slow extrusion process would cause increasing of the total force at the end of the extrusion because of heat dissipation to the environment. In addition the dead metal zone at the top of the billet was shrunk during the extrusion process. The ram speed would have little influence on the distribution and shape changing of dead metal zone. Once the extrusion went into steady stage, the strain rate of metal flow would keep a stable situation relatively.
