The learning objectives are to indulge students in the field of the mathematical description of the forming processes with material removal or plastic deformation, using finite element methods (FEM). By the conduct of this course, the students will gain the possibility to study, analyze and calculate critical technological and material parameters using modern analytical tools to solve such intractable problems. In this way, students will gain self-reliant research background in the field of material machining.
Course Content (Syllabus)
Mathematical description of the plastic deformation of materials using finite elements method (FEM) simulation techniques. Stress – strain fields determination during the plastic deformation. Simulation of high accuracy shear cutting, of deep drawing. Sheet and tube bending
