Composite Materials for Aerospace Training


Composite Materials for Aerospace Training Course Description

This three-day Composite Materials for Aerospace Training is designed for mechanical or materials engineers and managers that are going to use composite materials, i.e., graphite/epoxy, etc., in aerospace and military applications. This will allow mechanical and materials engineers to use simplified “design” equations needed to estimate the type of laminate for their design. The course also offers engineering managers the opportunity to see the complexity involved in composite design. Each topic will include worked numerical examples. Specific applications from SPFIE, MSX, NEAR, and other programs will be presented.

Skills Gained:

• What are the constituents of a composite, the analysis, tooling and fabrication processes used to consolidate a composite component?
• Understand the effects of fabrication variables on the properties of the composite material.
• What are generic mechanical and physical properties of composites versus traditional engineering materials?
• What are the limits of composites?
• What is a lamina, a laminate and how does the stiffness of each lamina contribute to the overall stiffness of the composite?
• How are stiffness and rigidity used to form two sets of equations that link the in-plane forces and moments?
• How to calculate initial estimates of stresses within a lamina.
• What are various strength criteria, including the Tsai-Wu failure envelope?

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
