Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

The definition of the form-errors of component in nett-forging required the analysis of error generation by considering both thermal and mechanical factors in the forging. To-date, however, most of the analyses have only referred to a single manufacturing cycle. Since forging productions are largely multi-cycle operations, component form-errors can vary with the manufacturing cycle. Using a developed procedure, the temperature change in the die during multi-cycle forward extrusion operations was computed. The computed temperature distributions in the die were then used for initiating the analysis of component form-errors for given manufacturing cycles. The analysis refers to forward extrusion for both single solid die- and compound die-set-configurations.
