Materials and Manufacturing Technology 7,5 Credits
Course ContentsThe course includes:
This course is intended to develop a deeper understanding of the relationship between manufacturing processing and materials properties for metallic components. It covers various manufacturing methods including casting, forming, and powder metallurgy, as well as secondary processing such as welding and machining, and coating. Some advanced manufacturing techniques such as additive manufacturing of metals will be also covered. For each manufacturing method, the covering aspects include principles, choices of materials, choice of processes, properties of materials, advantages and disadvantages, relative process economics and sustainability aspects. Examples are drawn from manufacturing processes mainly used in aerospace, automotive, electronics, and power generation sectors, as the main end-users.
The course includes the following items:
• Overview of materials (metals and alloys) selection and identification
• Overview of materials characterization and testing
• Detailed understanding of manufacturing methods to cast, form, and add/remove materials to/from the finished component
• Mechanics and physics of the interaction between manufacturing process, material and resulting product characteristics
PrerequisitesPassed courses at least 90 credits within the major subject Mechanical Engineering, 15 credits Mathematics and proof of English proficiency is required (or the equivalent).
