Deposition and Additive Technologies
FSI-9DATAcad. year: 2020/2021
A core of the course is seen in mastering the material aspects of additive technologies like selective laser melting, and/or with the use electron beam technology, cold kinetic deposition etc. Also 3D printing of ceramic and polymer materials will be included. This means to go through the powder precursors preparation, processing conditions selection, prepared material microstructures evaluation and relation to properties analyses and/or predictions. Students can apply acquired experience with “layer by layer” material preparation procedures for their own doctorate project realisation as, e.g. for materials with internal architecture creation, as well as, in future, they can contribute do additive processing of components in the technology level.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The aim may be achieved by practical verification of theoretical knowledge in computer-aided exercises and laboratory works.
Knowledge from powder metallurgy procedures are expected and/or ceramic technology procedures. A knowledge of CAD systems may be advantageous.
