Abstract

This article describes effect of extrusion ratio (ER) in direct extrusion process on mechanical behaviours of the alloy 6063 prepared in two different textures as homogenised and rapid quenched (HRQ) and unhomogenised and slow cooled (UHSC) conditions. In the study, AA-6063 alloy was directly extruded as rod by using three different single hole flat type dies with diameters 10, 30 and 50 mm.
