Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper gives an understanding of fundamental principles and relationships between manufacturing processes that are widely used in manufacturing industry, component microstructure, and properties. They include machining, metal casting, mechanical forming, powder metallurgy, welding and joining, and plastics forming. Knowledge of metrology and non-destructive testing techniques which are critically important in modern manufacturing are also introduced.
