Prerequisites: Manufacturing Technologies
Target skills and knowledge: Knowledge of the main techniques and the main tools for process numerical simulation.
Application of Finite Element Method techniques for the virtual modeling of metal forming and machining processes.
Examination methods: Written exam, based on exercises and open-ended questions.
Oral exam, focused on the theoretical aspects and on the use of the simulation tools.
Evaluation of laboratory exercises that are carried out during the laboratory sessions.
Assessment criteria: Thestudent will be evaluated on the basis of the ability to apply:
- design methods of manufacturing processes;
- tools for the virtual simulation of manufacturing processes;
- techniques and methodologies for the models calibration.
Course unit contents: Basics of the Finite Element Method applied to elasto-plastic deformations.
Calibration and validation of numerical models of manufacturing processes.
Experimental tests and data analysis for the evaluation of the material response in non-linear plastic deformations (flow curves, formability).
Experimental tests and data analysis for the evaluation of tribology in manufacturing processes (friction, wear, heat exchange).
Numerical modeling problems applied to manufacturing processes.
Coupled thermo-mechanical-metallurgical modeling.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: The course will include theoretical and hands-on lecture, the latter to be held in the research group lab during which the students will carry out different tests to gain data for the models calibration as well as in the numerical lab to learn developing numerical models of the manufacturing processes.
