Aluminum Rod Extrusion and Material Modeling
The article presents an outline of a scientific approach for testing constitutive relations for the aluminum extrusion process. By comparing ram force, container friction, die face pressure, outlet temperature measurement during rod extrusion with corresponding simulated data, inferences can in principle be drawn with respect to the validity models. The paper indicates that simulation results from the 2D ALMA2π program are in fair agreement with measurements during extrusion of AA6060, but more work needs to be done to control thermal conditions during extrusion.
