Teaching description

Teaching program is provisional and may be subject to changes

You must have passed the Examination of Mechanical Technology. The contents of the Industrial Design Drawing and knowledge of Technical Industrial Design are also useful.

The aspects of the "Machinability of materials for aeronautical application" in terms of cutting processes will be discussed. Laboratory exercises will be carried out by lathe. Practical activities will be carried out on the measurement of roughness, wear and application of condition monitoring tools. In the field of plastic deformation technologies, the basic principles of Super Plastic Forming and its applicability to the aeronautics industry will be illustrated. On some aspects discussed in the theory section, numerical examples will be carried out to familiarize with the physical quantities that characterize them and laboratory exercises will be focused on Finite Element simulation tools for the machining and forging processes

During and a the end of the course, the student should be able to acquire:
- An in-depth knowledge of materials for aeronautical application and processes for their transformation;
- A basic knowledge of the Finite Element manufacturing processes simulation with specific focus on machining and forging.

Classroom lessons

Oral, in which the student discusses theory and practical contents of the course.

- Critical analysis of aeronautical materials/processes for comparison with the reference context. Tutorials on the discussed topics.
- Machining of materials for aeronautical applications. Exercises on the discussed topics.
- Finite Elements simulation applied to the machining and forging and their application to some cases of study.
