Abstract:

The overall objective of this program was to develop practical computer-aided design and manufacturing CADCAM techniques for extrusion of aluminum alloys, steels, and titanium alloys. This report covers the Phase-I work conducted in this program. This work was completed by performing the following major tasks a review the present state of the art in extrusion die design and characterize the most commonly used extruded shapes, b divide these shapes into geometric modules and develop the CADCAM techniques for extruding a modular shape, c expand the results of the analysis, developed for a modular shape, to more practical simple shapes, such as Ls, Ts, and rectangles, and d perform extrusion trials with a rectangular shape to demonstrate the validity of CADCAM techniques. In order to enhance readability, the results of Phase-I work are presented in the form of three chapters as follows 1 Die Design for Extrusion of Structural Shapes, 2 CADCAM of a Streamlined Die for a Modular Shape, 3 CADCAM of Streamlined Dies for Lubricated Extrusion of Simple Structural Shapes.
