Summary

 

Metal Processing Technology - ME4-MMPT

Aims

Many industrial metal processes and applications involve shaping engineering components via plastic/viscoplastic deformation. These metal forming technologies are used for the manufacture of a range of metal components, such as automotive and aircraft body panels.  This module extends basic solid-mechanics concepts and methods to the modelling and analysis of viscoplastic flow and of metal microstructure evolution during metal forming processes.  It aims to provide a comprehensive survey of the analysis and simulation methods available, and practical exercises in their use. In particular:

  • To introduce plasticity and viscoplasticity theories underpinning metal plasticity technologies
  • To introduce theories for formulating unified constitutive equations for metal processing applications.
  • To extend plasticity and viscoplasticity theories for advanced metal forming applications
  • To introduce numerical techniques for advanced materials and process modelling.

Role

Associate Course Leader

Materials 1 - ME1-HMATL

Aims

To introduce students to the important mechanical properties that mechanical engineers require knowledge of and to introduce the concept and practice of materials selection.  The links between material structure, processing and properties are emphasised. Topics include tensile and fracture properties, material selection, atomic bonding, crystal structure and strengthening.  Also included is a focus on the four classes of engineering material: metals, ceramics, polymers and composites, considering the structure, properties and engineering applications of each. Practice in testing of materials is included.

Associate Course Leader

Materials 2 - ME2-HMATL

Aims

Provides the tools and understanding to predict component failures under multiaxial loading 

conditions due to yielding, fracture, fatigue and creep mechanisms, to identify these failure mechanisms in practice, and to design against them.
