The tube bending lab is designed along the lines of problem based learning and will make the students tackle a (simulated) real-world problem, whose solution will be in the form of a bent tube. The students would first understand the problem statement and the boundary conditions thoroughly and come up with a solution(s). Over the course of the lab the students would be required to design the bent tube, plan the processing steps, determine the process parameters necessary to manufacture the bent tube to tolerance  and subsequently manufacture the tube. Through the course of their actions, the students will learn and familiarize themselves with fundamental bending topics such as springback, wrinkling, use of mandrel etc. and the dependency on the final product properties on the chosen input process parameters.

This lab provides 3CP.
