PRINCIPLES OF METAL FORMING TECHNOLOGY
The course focuses on understanding the science and technology of different forming processes. Most of the
metallic objects undergo at least one of the metal forming operations, except the cast ones. Understanding basic
principles of metal forming and further being applied by engineers and metallurgists directly contribute towards
improvement in production in the industries. The concept of stress, deformation and failure, mechanics of
metalworking and analysis of different metal working processes will be covered during the whole course.
Introduction and working principle of powder metallurgy forging will be presented in the end. The course will
enable the students be conversant with working principles so that they can use the knowledge gained towards
increasing the productivity of manufacturing industries in the long run.
