Office Hours: M 10:00AM – 11:00AM and W 11:00 AM – 12:00PM
This class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30PM-1:20PM – Surge 104C.
Overview of manufacturing processes primarily for metals and alloys, focusing on
fabrication processes (casting, bulk deformation, sheet metal forming, machining) and
joining processes (welding, adhesive bonding, mechanical fastening). Emphasis will be
placed on process capabilities and limitations, with calculation of process parameters
(force, power, etc.) for select processes. Also includes topics in additive manufacturing,
heat treatment, product design and process planning, design-for-manufacture/assembly,
numerical control, and inspection.
Having successfully completed this course, the student will be able to:
describe the key concepts of material plasticity;
apply critical thinking to analyze and interpret data;
interpret the uncertainty of quantitative measurement;
explain the necessity for qualitative estimation;
describe traditional metal-products manufacturing processes; and
evaluate and select appropriate manufacturing processes.
