Compulsory elective for CMATD5-TMV, TTMVM2-IMTA/MPTA/MDNA
Elective for all other programs
Part of programme
To give knowledge of available methods for modelling and simulation of manufacturing processes like casting and plastic forming to give an understanding of the possibilities of simulation of these processes.
Course main content
The course gives an outline of different numerical simulation techniques such as the finite difference method and the finite element method for simulation of fluid flow, heat conduction and convection. These phenomena are basic phenomena that occur in different manufacturing processes.
Examples of the analysis of some processes using these simulation methods are done in application such as casting and plastic deformation.
Three projects will be carried out using different simulation techniques. The projects are to be presented in written reports and presented orally.
