The paper presents a theoretical analysis of hydrodynamic lubrication in the hydrostatic extrusion process which includes a consideration of thermal effects in the lubricant film arising from the work of plastic deformation. A Newtonian lubricant with an exponential pressure-temperature-viscosity relationship has been assumed and allowance has been made for the effects of redundant deformation of the worked material. The results of the theory are compared with those from previous isothermal and solid friction theories.
