Course Description:
Fundamentals of dynamic plasticity applied in bulk and porous materials. Nonconventional forming techniques of bulk material (ring-rolling, impact and rotary forging, hydrostatic extrusion). Non-conventional sheet-metal forming techniques (hydroforming, high energy rate forming, shot-peening, superplasticity, punching). Non-conventional
material removal processes (machining/Grinding) (Abrasive jet machining, Explosive cutting, Ultra-sonic machining, Electro-discharge machining (EDM), electrochemical grinding (ECG), electrochemical machining (ECM), chemical cutting). Non-conventional welding techniques (explosive cladding/welding, laser welding). Powder compaction (powder metallurgy, dynamic powder compaction, elastic and plastic waves in porous
materials) Defects.
1. Open-die impact forging
2. Explosive sheet metal forming.
3. Electrodischarge machining (EDM).
4. Powder metallurgy: Static and dynamic compaction of metal powders.
