This paper is concerned with an attempt to find an upper bound solution for the problems of steady-state extrusion of asymmetric polygonal section bars through rough square dies. A class of kinematically admissible velocity fields is examined, reformulating the SERR technique, to get the velocity field that gives the lowest upper bound. This velocity field is utilized to compute the non-dimensional average extrusion pressure at various area reductions for different billet aspect ratios.
