Module content and teaching

Principal aims

To establish the detailed links between design, material, behaviour and process limitations with a view to ensuring design is carried out with manufacturing being considered.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module the student should be able to: Understand the differences between die/mould geometry and component geometry; Understand the effect of material behaviour on mould/die fill and contraction; Understand the geometry requirements for heat-treatment and assembly; Create designs with the above as compromises.

Timetabled teaching activities

Autumn. This module includes 30 hours of lectures. Required self-study: 120 hours
