Use of thermal process applications related to casting, conditioning, forming and joining process applications. Students in cooperation with their professor will research and review a variety of thermal conditioning processes for materials conditioning i.e. fluidized beds, austempering, molten salt baths, cryogenic, or other emerging processes. As appropriate examine related transient liquid phase (TLP) and or fusion joining processes used in advanced manufacturing. Research topics to organize a portfolio of student learning outcomes that will include data on the effects of thermal conditioning of materials, effects of thermal joining on the heat effected zone (HAZ) of the material(s). Process techniques used to achieve repeatable outcomes of hardness, and alloy distribution in effected thermally treated materials. Student research may include the use of non-metallic adhesives, and other emerging hybrid process technologies as alternates to thermal processes in manufacturing. Introductory discussion of historically used materials, joining process, and related safety practices will be included to provide the student with sufficient point of reference so as to recognize the technological differences that separates traditional thermal materials treatment and joining processes from advanced ones.
