Overview

This course will begin by covering the fundamental aspects of classical laminated plate theory to provide participants with the required knowledge and skills to be able to critically assess the benefits and penalties associated with using composite laminates in place of metals. It will also demonstrate, through the development of spreadsheet design tools and the use of design databases, how to achieve performance improvements with respect to buckling, strength and thermal shape stability characteristics, through comparisons between conventional and non-conventional designs.

What You’ll Learn

Who Should Attend

• Graduates of Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering degree programs, who wish to gain deeper insights in the analysis and design of laminated composite materials
• Practicing engineers who require new skills and/or further evidence that non-conventional designs can lead to potential weight savings, improved performance and reduced manufacturing times.

Prerequisites

Mechanical or Aeronautical Engineering degree.
