Prerequisites: Knowledge about the behaviour of metallic materials when subjected to plastic deformation.
Target skills and knowledge: The aim of the course is to give the basic knowledge of manufacturing processes, with particular regard to bulk and sheet forming processes and machining operations.
For each process, different aspects related to its mechanics, the suitable process parameters, the process and equipment characteristics, the obtainable products and related materials will be given. Besides the theoretical aspects, some examples will be given with the aim of solving practical manufacturing problems.
Examination methods: Written exam devoted to the solution of 34 practical exercises.
Oral exam devoted to theory.
Assessment criteria: The student must demonstrate the ability in solving process design problems, such as the evaluation of the maximum force to choose the most suitable machine to carry out the investigated process. The student must also demonstrate the knowledge of the main process characteristics, fields of application, advantages and disadvantages compared to alternative processes.
Course unit contents: - Recalls on metallic material behaviour under plastic deformation conditions
- Recalls on tribology
- Bulk forming processes: rolling, forging, extrusion and drawing
- Sheet forming processes: blanking/shearing, bending, deep drawing, forming limit diagrams
- Machining processes: orthogonal cutting, turning, milling.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Theory lectures, design problems, seminars.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Textbook, slides of the lectures available for the students.
