An Analytical Approach to the Extrusion Pressure of Bimetallic Tube
In this paper, the extrusion process of bimetallic tubes is discussed, and the extrusion pressure is calculated based on the method of energy conservation, according to the three categories of metal flow that may occur during the process. A number of parameters, geometry of bimetallic tube, mechanical properties of material components and friction conditions, are highlighted in this analytical method. Compared with the data of TP304l/20G bimetallic tubes which were extruded at 1100-1200 °C, the calculated results show a good agreement with the industrial results, with the error less than 10 %. It also proves that the friction between the two layers play an important role in the process.
