This chapter deals with computer aided design of profile extrusion dies used for polymer processing. After a brief introduction to the overall problem and the terminology of optimisation, the POLYOPT optimisation layer, which uses POLYFLOW as the simulation software and DOT as the optimisation software, is introduced. Several examples will show the feasibility of this approach.
