Die Optimal Design for a Large Diameter Thin-Walled Aluminum Profile Extrusion by ALE Algorithm
Extrusion process of a large diameter thin-walled aluminum profile was simulated by Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) algorithm based on HyperXtrude software. The results show that the material flow velocity in the bearing exit of the initial design die is non-uniform. Three times modifications were performed and simulated. The optimal design with more uniform flow velocity in the bearing exit was obtained.
