Eligibility

General entry requirements for Master's level (second cycle)
Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling the requirements above.

Specific entry requirements

English 6 (or by other approved means with the equivalent proficiency level)
Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling the requirements above.

Course specific prerequisites

Basic courses in materials science, solid mechanics and manufacturing technology.

Aim

The aim of the course is to introduce important manufacturing aspects of metal forming and joining focusing on welding.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

1. Outline basic principles of the most important methods for sheet metal forming and their relation to products and production including cost and sustainability aspects.
2. Analyse and Discuss the influence of material properties and stress state on formability.
3. Define and Compare the most common joining methods for metals, with focus on welding, and their relation to products and production including cost and sustainability aspects.
4. Reason on the influence of underlying chemical and physical reactions on joining processes.
5. Discuss cutting methods in the perspective to prepare for forming and welding processes.
6. Explain the physical metallurgy of welding in important alloys and Judge weldability, phase transformations, microstructure and properties of welds and heat affected zones.
7. Outline advanced weld simulation and Analyse important welding-induced effects on materials and components with simplified models.
8. Discuss design and quality assurance of formed and welded components including typical defects, generation of internal stresses and their influence on mechanical properties.

Content

Important forming and joining methods for sheet metal are covered. Influence of material characteristics on formability and weldability are central. Metal cutting methods, quality assurance and evaluation of strength and defects in formed and welded components are introduced.

Organisation

The course is organised with lectures, laboratory sessions (compulsory), and project work (compulsory). Study visits are planned for, but cannot be guaranteed.

Literature

The course is based on e-books available via Chalmers library and literature published on the course home page. The selection will be announced in due time.

Examination including compulsory elements

The course will be assessed through project reports and a handwritten exam. The results of the parts will be weighted into a final grade.
