ADVANCED METHODS TO MECHATRONICS

17 ― 21 July 2017
Graduation: 2 ECTS credits
Fee: 400 €

ANNOTATION

The summer school of mechatronic systems offers an intensive 5 days course for all interested in mechatronics, particularly systems for active vibration control, including basic hardware and software. Lectures will consist of theoretical fundamentals followed by practical exercises that will demonstrate methods and tools for measuring signals from mechanical and electrical systems and explain how to process them in Matlab. The laboratory experiments will be based on MEMS (Micro Electronic Mechanical Systems) and piezoactuators, while the laboratory measurements will use models such as Segway for vertical stabilization, active vibration control of cantilever beams and journal bearings with the use of the piezoactuators. The schedule divides each day into key lectures, lab demonstrations, and basic work in the computer lab. Courses are planned from 9:00 to 16:00 with two short breaks and a lunch break.

MATHEMATICAL AND PHYSICAL MODELING OF METAL FORMING PROCESSES

17 ― 21 July 2017
Graduation: 2 ECTS credits
Fee: 480 €

ANNOTATION

The International Summer School course Mathematical and Physical Modeling of Forming Processes is a 5-day intensive course intended for those who have studied hot and cold bulk forming processes (rolling, forging and wire drawing) during their studies. Through attractive interconnected laboratory tasks, it presents the key steps of preparing, carrying out and evaluating physical and mathematical simulations of bulk forming. While the physical modelling of hot rolling of steel will be conducted in laboratory rolling mills, the participants will also learn about other equipment used in modelling of forming processes (e.g. the Gleeble plastometer). They will also be able to explore mathematical modelling using the FORGE 3D software. Each day is divided into key lectures, demonstrations in the lab and basic work in the computer room. Courses are planned from 9:00 to 16:00 with two short breaks and a lunch break.
