Course Objectives The purpose of this course is to introduce the production technologies used in the defense industry. İntroductory level information will e given on the relevant production and material technologies and the choice of production and material technologies will be detailed with the design procedures. Welding, metal forming and bending, cutting, forging, casting and heat treatment are among the manufacturing techniques that will covered. Vaious assemblies that have been manufactured with these techniques will be introduced and the reasons for selection of proper processes and materials will be given. Also potential weight decrease apllications will shown. The students will grasp the essential notions on armoured vehicles. For example, the student will be informed on the different production techniques applied to wheeled or paletted, steel or aluminium body vehicles.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
Course Content Armored vehicle survivability concepts; threat types; basics of armor materials; penetration mechanics; metallic, ceramic and composites used in armor design; protection against blast; high strain-rate test methods for deriving constitutive and failure behavior of materials; specialized test methods for verification of protection levels; computational techniques used to predict structural failure.
