Abstract : Ten foot extrusions of Ti-6A1-4V were made. Eight feet of steel and twelve feet of aluminum were also made. Extrusions were of the Tee configuration, 2 inch by 1 inch by .050 inches thick. Surface finish is good, 100 RMS and tolerances of + or -.005 inches were maintained. Some of the effects of die entry angle on the high energy rate extrusion process were determined. Details of this investigation are presented. A description of the extrusions made and the braking devices is also given. (Author)
