Metal Container Die Ram Pressure, p H h Deadmetalzone 45°
Extrusion with Dead Metal Zone at 45°
A hodograph can be constructed for plane strain extrusion when there is friction on die faces. Here, we assume a dead metal zone develops in the container adjacent to the die.

Rule 1:
Look for symmetry and reduce the geometry accordingly.

Rule 2:
Label regions of the model which move relative to each other.
A particle will travel a path as shown. It is sheared when meeting line AB to move parallel to AC, then sheared at BC to move parallel to CD.

Rule 3:
Define an origin of the hodograph, O, corresponding to a stationary component of the system.

Rule 4:
Draw the velocity vector of the unknown force, i.e. unit length (Op), on the hodograph.

Rule 5:
Draw vectors in the known directions of the moving components (dq and Or), relative to the origin O and to each other (pq and qr ) on the hodograph.

Rule 6:
Each vertex where these vectors intersect represents one (or more) of the labelled regions of the model.
Oq defines motion of particles in region Q .

Rule 7:
Velocity vectors must be oriented parallel to slip planes due to conservation of matter.
