Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
The aim of the study course is to stabilize the knowledge of cutting physical phenomena. Training improves knowledge of combined treatment processes and how they affect the cutting system. Consequently, it assures ability to assess the treatment of physical phenomena and heat processes and competent expertise in cutting materials and management of manufacturing processes.
Learning outcomes
and assessment
Must know the combined treatment processes, constructed of elastic and plastic deformation and differential treatment process substitution. - Test types: the combined tasks, presentations, individual work. Exam. Criteria: Able to define the essential prerequisites and procedures of combined treatments over the treatment process.
Must be able to assess the physical and thermal processes, which formed during processing and be able to choose more economical and more productive material cutting condition. - Test Types: Home work (challenges, reviews) on the combined themes. Exam. Criteria: Able to anticipate developments and processing, production of new and improved manufacturing processes.
Must be able to predict allowable deflections and temperatures as well as lead to advanced manufacturing processes. - Test Types: Tasks, Information systematization, independent work. Exam. Criteria: Ability to read and evaluate the cost effective cutting. Able to create new cutting schemes, and predict their usability
