    The goalThe aim is to familiarize students with the most advanced technological methods of making parts by: superalloys, and reactive metal implants, composite metal foam castings ,monocrystals obtained by directed crystallization and dr.Many of these procedures are still in the experimental stage of development or prototypical primarily because of exceptional costs of production.
    The outcomeStudents will be able to recognize the value and quality of the product obtained by special technological procedures and to assess the usage and commercial justification of the possibility of making the same, especially in local conditions.
    Contents of lectures• Making castings of superalloys • Development of implants, aerospace and other parts of the Ti-alloys and other reactive metals • Composite Materials • Rapid prototyping (RP) • The use of computer graphics for 3D modeling • Demonstration of software packages for the simulation of casting and prototyping • Future technologies-making parts of: metal foam, the direct deposition of metals from semi-solid player slates, etc..
    Contents of exercisesVisit precise casting foundries, mint NBS, working with computer graphics and demos CAE technique in casting.
