This course is aimed at giving an overview of Mechanical Engineering Profession and curriculum.  It is expected that the students will be motivated in their studies if the significance of various curricular components are informed to them in advance.

Course Outcomes:

CO1: Develop an overview of Mechanical Engineering and get motivated for learning the curricular components.

CO2: Understand the inter-relationships among the various subjects in Mechanical Engineering.

CO3: Solve elementary problems in various Mechanical Engineering subjects.

CO4: Appreciate the significance of allied subjects like mathematics and communication skills in Mechanical Engineering.

The objective of this course is to learn the analysis of various metal forming processes.  The necessary background knowledge is developed within the course itself.  Hence, the first two modules deal with Theory of Elasticity and Theory of Plasticity respectively.  The remaining two modules are on the analysis of individual processes.  Third module contains various approximate techniques like Slab Method, while the fourth module is on more advanced tools, viz. Slip Line Field Theory and Bound Theorems.

Course Outcomes: On completion of the course, the students should be able to:

CO1: Formulate problems in elasticity and select appropriate solution techniques.

CO2: Understand the basics and solve elementary problems of theory of plasticity.

CO3: Analyze metal forming processes using slab method.

CO4: Use advanced tools like slip line techniques and bound theorems for metal forming analysis.
