Teaching description

Teaching program is provisional and may be subject to changes

It is necessary to have passed Mechanical Technology exam. Knowledge of Technical Industrial Design exam is useful

The course aims to deepen the aspects related to production technologies applied in aeronautical constructions with particular reference to the choice and function performed by the construction materials and the transformation technologies connected to them.

In the field of plastic deformation technologies, the fundamental principles of plasticity theory,  formability and material behaviour, Sheet Metal Forming Processes and their applicability to the aeronautical sector will be illustrated.

At the same time, the aspects relating to assembly processes and in particular those relating to the welding of metallic materials, riveting and Adhesive Bonding of the components will be treated. Lastly non-destructive testing for verification of product quality will be tackled.

Numerical exercises will be carried out on some aspects covered in the theory part to familiarize with the physical quantities that characterize them, in addition to laboratory exercises that will be focused on tools for the finite element simulation of sheet metal forming.

  • Knowledge of elasto-plastic behavior of materials and rheological models
  • Basic knowledge of Assembly Processes
  • Basic knowledge for the Sheet Metal Forming Simulation

Frontal lessons

The exam consists of two test:

Oral: the student discusses the contents of the course, illustrating their level of knowledge and understanding of the topics covered.

Practical: it will be focused on the tools for the finite element simulation of sheet metal forming.
