This subject introduces the elements of a number of basic manufacturing processes and associated materials behaviour required in the design of mechanical devices. The configuration of machine tools is discussed in the context of orthogonal cutting and the basics of materials deformation processes, including, casting, forging, sheet-metal forming and polymer processing, are developed. Graphical representation techniques include sectioning, conventional representations, dimensioning, tolerancing, and further develops computer-aided design skills (CAD). Also included are 24 hours of practical workshop experience with assorted hand and machine tools to produce a manufactured article.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
At the end of this course students should be able to:
- Articulate clearly a range of different manufacturing processes.
- Determine appropriate parameters for different manufacturing process.
- Justify the most appropriate manufacturing process and material for a given product.
- Apply design for manufacture principles.
- Perform a range of different manufacturing processes.
- Clearly present designs for manufacture in the form of an Engineering Report.
Reports (15%); Group Design Exercise (50%); Final Exam (35%)
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
Thirty five one-hour lectures, eleven three-hour workshops, one metrology lab, one turning lab and one sheet forming lab
