Abstract

Wire electrical discharge machining (EDM) possesses many advantages over the conventional manufacturing process. Hence, this process was used for machining of all conductive materials, especially, nowadays this is the most common process for machining of aerospace aluminum alloys. [...]

Abstract

Context
Large and thick aeronautical parts present distortion after machining because the residual stresses (RS) generated during previous manufacturing steps (heat treatment).
Before assembly, distortion is removed manually.
It is a time consuming operation and [...]

Abstract

Residual stresses and distortion in Additive Manufactured (AM) parts are two key obstacles which seriously hinder the wide application of this technology. Nowadays, understanding [...]

Abstract

This paper deals with the numerical simulation of friction stir welding (FSW) processes. FSW techniques are used in many industrial applications and [...]
