The study of the simulation of effect of outer die angle in Equal Channel Angular Extrusion (ECAE) process was investigated. The simulation was carried out on 6063 aluminium alloy with a view to achieve ultra-fine grain structures. ADINA user interphase Version 8.6 (900 modes) was used for the simulation. The unextruded parameters of the 6063 aluminium alloy were used as input codes and some basic assumptions were made in designing the model on 2-Dimensional scale. The billet was meshed by dividing the vertical and horizontal geometry into 30 and 4 elements respectively. The die angle was varied from 0o to 90o and the simulation results were displayed. The results showed that the force of 27.5X106 N, 27.5X106 N, 27.6X106 N and 31.2 X106 N was required to deform when the outer die angle was 0o, 22.5o, 45o and 90o respectively. Also, the strains achieved were 0.61, 0.62, 0.66 and 0.69 respectively. Thus, highest force is required at 90o and the strain achieved at 0o is the lowest. Based on the results, it was recommended that it is more economical to extrude at an outer angle between 22.5o and 45o as a relatively higher effective strain will be induced.
