Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This module establishes 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 students will be able to: • Analyse the relationship between the tooling geometry and limitations on component design. • Contrast plant requirements for different manufacturing processes. • Relate the effect of material behaviour during processing to the components that can be achieved. • Summarise the differences between solid and liquid manufacturing routes and link them to component design. • Design components given the confines of a particular manufacturing route.

Timetabled teaching activities
