Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Studen will be able to: Delimitate forming technology in face of competing shaping technologies Discuss meaning and perspective of steel Express thermomechanical quantities in forming processes Describe forming technologies (rolling, forging, wire drawing, extrusion) Solve fundamental exercises of technological practice Explain fundamental processes of microstructure evolution during hot and cold forming Apply fundamental laws of plastic deformation

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


Subject features students in a transparent way into problems of materials forming. Explains fundamental terms and context, characterizes most considerable forming technologies. Forms background for easier understanding and successful lesson of consecutive subjects of field of study.
