Course Synopsis

This course is about the shaping of metals and alloys by pressure. It is designed primarily for students in metallurgical and materials engineering discipline. However, it also meets the need of students in mechanical engineering who are interested in the concept of plastic deformation of materials and the technology of metal shaping by pressure. Methods of forming materials into useful shapes by the application of loads on solid metals and alloys are discussed alongside the ultimate rupture or fracture of the material. As a practical course, the focus is to impart useful skills on the students in order to enhance their understanding of metal/ material shaping by pressure, and prepare them for other specialised applications to be encountered in high-tech. manufacturing processes. Topics to be covered include texturing, principles of hot and cold working of metals, structural and property changes during hot and cold working of metals /alloys, concept of plastic deformation, and the technology of metal rolling, forging, extrusion, sheet drawing, wire drawing and the peculiarities of reheating furnaces

Course Synopsis

This course is designed for students in the field of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering to acquire quality knowledge in the area of design and production of metals and alloys. However, students studying mechanical and production engineering are not exempted from the benefits offered by this course as it provides sound knowledge and a dependable background on how most engineering parts are produced. In fact, the sustainability of any manufacturing industry depends on the knowledge of foundry. This is simply because most parts needed in operation and maintenance is economically produced via foundry technology. The course is nourished with practical problems and solutions that will enhance the skill of the students especially those that are willing to be self-reliant in future. The course is an entrepreneurship course that avail the student the opportunity of becoming self-employed after they might have graduated from the University. Topics to be covered in the course include: melting practice; casting processes; gating systems; fluidity; risering; solidification of metals/alloys; casting defects; and casting design
