Students are expected to have passed: - Production and Manufacturing Systems - Mechanical technology
Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results.
-Students will develop skills and acquire the necessary knowledge for the correct definition and selection of the production systems and processes necessary to obtain especially critical components. - Students will develop their communication skills to communicate the results and conclusions. - They will increase their ability to analyze advanced problems related with new processes and production systems (analytically and numerically). - They will improve their ability to lead, plan and supervise multidisciplinary teams. - The student will receive the necessary knowledge to make optimal designs according to the process and the production system used for its manufacture. - The student will have a global vision of the industrial transformation until the arrival of Industry 4.0.
Description of contents: programme
1/ Introduction to the machining proceses (milling, drilling, turning. Interest of high speed machining (good and bad points). 2/ Introduction to the modelization of machining (analytical, numerical and phenomenological). Advantages and limitations of each one. 3/ Determination of the cutting forces (orthogonal and oblique cutting) and chip contact length on the tool rake face. 4/ Description of the Merchand model. Hypothesis, critics and how to ameliorate it. 5/ The importance to have a good description of the behavior of the material in the numerical and analytical codes. Determination of the levels of strain and strain rate in the primary shear zone. 6/ Ley of behavior. Presentation of some leys and methodology to determine the Johnson-Cook parameters. 7/ Effect of the material behavior on the cutting process. Diferencies between metals and composites machining. 8/Termical problem in machining (induced damage, friction, wear, ...) 9/ Description of analytical model of Molinari (hypothesis and complete explanation of the equations). 10/ Fabrication in the motorsport industry 11/ Machining in mechanical industry 12/ No conventional machining. 13/ Cutting tools.
