This course gives an introduction into the basics of long fibre reinforced composite mechanics. Most of the course is based on the so-called Classical Lamination Theory. It also deals with the use of finite elements with these anisotropic materials. Fabrication labwork is included, as well as a company visit + company assignment.
Summarises the production techniques, introduces micromechanics, Classical Laminate Theory, simple strength criteria, Production technique labwork; Visit of composite company, with company assignment.
