Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Analysis, evaluation and compensation of component-errors for nett-forming of engineering components

Balendra, R and Qin, Yi and Lu, X (2000) Analysis, evaluation and compensation of component-errors for nett-forming of engineering components. Journal of Materials Processing Technology, 106 (1-3). pp. 204-211. ISSN 0924-0136

Form errors in components that are manufactured by the plastic deformation of engineering materials originate from several sources, amongst which are those that originate from the deflection of the machine during the deformation cycle and the elastic deflection of the die. To date, it has not been possible to eliminate these errors for want of a systemic theory and supporting technologies. The presently reported research is conducted to develop the approach and tool for the definition of component-errors for the nett-forming of engineering components, and based on this, an error analysis and evaluation system for nett-forming is developed with a view to improving the efficiency of nett-form manufacturing.
