Additive Manufacturing and Joining Technologies (Polytech – Ecole Polytechnique)
08 — 19 JULY, 2019
We welcome students to come to a wonderful city of St. Petersburg, the cultural heart of Russia as well as a major trade gateway, financial and industrial center. Studying in St. Petersburg is a great experience which will contribute significantly to the student’s future success.
This is a joint program developed in cooperation with Ecole Polytechnique (France). The School provides the unique opportunity to attend intensive academic program, which is focused on the additive manufacturing (AM) and joining techniques (JT) with experience of professors from European countries, with different opinions and approaches. The two-weeks School is divided in two blocks: Basics and Advanced. First block will give you the theoretical knowledge, basic descriptions of the technologies and an overview of their applications. Second block consists in advanced topics on these technologies based on state-of-the-art practice based activities in research laboratories and deep aspects of the material microstructure evolutions during processing. The program will cover: AM and JT, powder production and characterization, metallurgical and mechanical properties, residual stresses and post-treatements, topological optimization. The school program is suitable for students and engineers interested in these technologies and topics. All studies are developed in accordance with the European requirements and can be recognized as a period of study abroad.
AM and JT Basics
First part of the course dedicated to the introduction of concepts, technologies, influence of process parameters on metallurgical and mechanical properties and characterization techniques. Could be attended by everyone who would like to have a general overview in AM and JT.
Advanced topics in AM and JT
Technical topics and challenges in AM and JT (laser-matter interaction, friction induced plastic strains, fast solidification, phase transformations, process simulation and topological optimization) for people who attended the first week and/or senior engineers and scientists.
