Abstract:

The main aim of this study is to investigate the effect of Equal Channel Angular Extrusion (ECAE) process on the mechanical characteristics, microhardness and the extrusion pressure. Equal Channel Angular Extrusion (ECAE) process is a technique used for imparting a large plastic deformation to materials without a resultant decrease in cross sectional area. The pressures required for extrusion were measured, and the mechanical properties, microhardness and extrusion pressure for lead were evaluated. ECAE die was designed and manufactured in order to carry out this study, ANSYS software was used to investigate stress, strain, strain energy and displacement based on FEM. It was found that the extrusion pressure is decreased as the number of passes increased, where the microhardness is also decreased as the number of passes increased. But the mechanical characteristics have been enhanced by 33.5% after the second pass. The lead material condensed and become rigid as the number of passes increased. This mentioned that the ECAE could be used to have the super plastic behavior in materials, so the max force was reduced by 60% after the third pass of extruding pure lead.
