The Design and Performance of Composites

 
Type:MRes.Mod
Provider:Imperial College
Duration:
 

The aim of this module is to give students a detailed understanding of fibre-reinforced polymer composites such that they can rank composites alongside other materials to meet a product specification.

Advanced Composites Manufacture

 
Type:CPD
Provider:Plymouth University
Duration:2, 3 and 4 days
 

All ACMC’s short courses are aimed primarily at industry engineers and technical staff.  They provide a solid grounding in both the principles and practice of composites manufacturing technology, with an emphasis on practical demonstrations and applications.  Most courses include contributions from industry speakers.  Courses include:  resin infusion;  small craft surveying;  vacuum bag processes;  protective paints and coatings for industrial and marine applications;  introduction to composites manufacture, design with composite materials;  resin transfer moulding.

Composites Material Structures

 
Type:M.Sc.Mod
Provider:Cranfield University
Duration:5 days
 

The analysis and design procedures of composite material structures are considerably more complex than those of their metallic counterparts.  This is due, of course, to the anisotropic nature of typical laminated composite materials.  In order to achieve safe and reliable composite structural systems, individuals involved with the design of composite structures will, as a prerequisite, need to have a sound knowledge and firm grasp of the underlying principles of the mechanical response of composite materials.  This course aims to provide the basic knowledge and understanding of the mechanics of composite materials in order to permit their efficient use in design applications.

Introduction to Composite Materials Science

 
Type:
Provider:Surrey University
Duration:
 

The basic concepts and practices of composite materials are introduced in this course.  No prior knowledge or experience is assumed.  The emphasis is on developing an understanding from first principles rather than reviewing current practice.  The lectures are concentrated in the first three days and the final two days are devoted to exercise classes and laboratory work.

Composite Materials Technology

 
Type:
Provider:Surrey University
Duration:
 

A thorougyh treatement of basic mechanics, failure and fatigue is given; and an introduction to the principles of design including joints and repair.  An overview of manufacturing processes is included with a more detailed analysis of pre-preg processing and thermoplastic laminates.  There are review lectures on metal matrix copmosites and ceramic matrix composites and applications in several key technologies
