Background in chemistry or electrochemistry that provides a comprehensive overview of numerous
plating processes and their associated sciences. Provides a clear understanding of metal finishing
technology, permitting the student to understand specifications, avoid routine finishing problems,
evaluate product output, and expediently resolve process difficulties.
1. To calculate the reactive forces.
2. To analyse the structures.
3. To know the geometric properties of the different shapes.
4. To teach energy and momentum methods.
5. Plating shop personnel and representatives of suppliers who want a more thorough understanding
of finishing processes. Those who would benefit from the introduction course to electroplating and
surface finishing would gain from this one as well, as would managers, QC personnel, researchers
Upon the completion of the course, students are expected:
- Understand basic chemistry, including atomic structure, elements, molecules, pH, acids,
bases, vital equations, neutralization, oxidation-reduction, reaction kinetics, analysis,
titration, atomic weight, critical calculations associated with process solutions;
- Solve the engineering problems in case of equilibrium conditions.
- Calculate the reaction forces of various supports of different structures.
- Solve the problems involving dry friction.
- Determine the centroid, centre of gravity and moment of inertia of various surfaces and
- Solve the problems involving dynamics of particles and rigid bodies
Mode of instruction:
The course combines lectures with presentations and discussion.
