Abstract

Engineering education should permit students to communicate in a manner similar to that of practicing engineers. Engineers use technical writing to explain the design process that they have gone through in their work. This study develops simulation analysis for learning about extrusion dies. Students use Deform3D software and 3D modelling to develop their own applications. Some of the parameter settings that are available to design and integrate the different parts of an extrusion die design are also discussed. Analytical results indicate that experiments supported by DEFORMTM3D simulation analysis add to the knowledge and understanding of the material by the students. The results of this study indicate that the proposed laboratory activity is successful. Most students responded positively to these laboratory activities and had no difficulty with the overall activity. Overall student satisfaction with the learning activities was high.
