AMTAS Short Course on Advanced Composite Materials and Structures
|Dates:||March 20–22, 2012|
|Time:||2.5 days; 20 hours of instruction|
|Location:||University of Washington|
Advanced composite materials are used in many industries including aerospace, marine, automotive, medical, energy, and recreation. Striking examples of the expanding use of composites are the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350, as these materials improve performance and save weight. To better prepare engineers in applying these new material technologies to the design and manufacturing of composite structures, AMTAS is pleased to offer this special opportunity in advanced composites education.
This 2.5-day (20-hour) short course provides an introduction to the science and technology of composite materials and structures. The course will begin with a broad overview of polymeric composites, followed by detailed discussions of constituent materials, manufacturing processes, tooling, analysis methods, non-destructive inspection, and repair. Course content does not include any proprietary or export-controlled information.
After successfully completing this course, the student will be able to identify the unique characteristics of composites and apply the fundamental and practical knowledge necessary to build and maintain composite structures.
