Teaching

  • EGA266 Digital Manufacturing

    The aim of this course module is to give practical based learning by product development and introducing basic principles to digital manufacturing and to define the complete fabrication process. And then introduces various types and application of digital manufacturing, both existing and potential are examined. The core of the module lies in the studies of digital manufacturing technologies for production and manufacturing of end-use industrial products and components. And Including conceptual engineering real world applicable products, planning, designing, programming, rapid manufacturing and develop digital connectivity among design, research, develop, manufacture, with more sustainable use of energy, resources and cost savings by reducing expensive downstream changes. As part of this, digital manufacturing are practically experienced through fabrication process from concept design to product and component manufacturing including open source software programming. A central part of the module is the manufacture of a system that uses a range of digital manufacturing skills.

  • EGH305 Advanced Engineering Structures

    This module covers the fundamentals of linear elasticity and the stress analysis of the thin-walled structural components which are commonly employed across Engineering but especially in the design of modern wings and fuselages. In particular, the bending, shearing and twisting of thin-walled beams with open, closed or multi-cell cross-sections is studied in detail. The stiffening effect of stringers is investigated. Taper and end constraints are discussed. Numerous examples demonstrate the application of the theory. The module teaches the analytical skills, but also develops the students' feeling for thin-walled structures.
