Cast Design and Calculation 3 Credits

Course Contents

The course aims to provide knowledge about how to design castings and casting processes in order to provide optimal functionality at a low economical cost and environmental impact. The students will learn about drivers for economic cost and environmental impact in a casting and in a foundry. Design and product development methods are introduced, both basic methods and advanced computer based simulation methods as Finite Element Analyses and Topology Optimization.

The course includes the following topics:
- Drivers of economic and environmental cost in a casting and in a foundry
- Basic design rules and casting process simulations
- Product development and simulation methods
- Advanced product development and structural optimization methods
