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 program was conducted in two phases. This report covers the Phase-II work, which was completed by performing the following major tasks a assemble geometric modules to represent practical extrusion shapes, b apply the CADCAM method to a streamlined die, c develop a CADCAM system for non-lubricated extrusion through flat-face dies, d conduct extrusion trials and evaluate CADCAM extrusion. In order to enhance readability, the results of Phase-II work are presented in the form of two volumes. Volume I includes the following chapters 1 CADCAM of Streamlined Dies for Lubricated Extrusion of T Sections, 2 CADCAM of Flat-Face Dies for Nonlubricated Extrusion of Aluminum Structural Shapes, and 3 Extrusion of T Sections of Aluminum, Titanium and Steel using computer-aided techniques. Volume II is the Instruction Manual and describes the content and use of computer programs. Author
