3003100 Introduction to Composite Materials 3.0 3
Description The course describes the definition, types and fabrication processes, and mechanics of composite materials. The contents focus on the characteristics and design method of composite materials. The differences between the traditional homogeneous, isotropic materials and the composites will be iterated in order to realize the best utilization of composite materials. The contents are: definition and characteristics of composites, fiber reinforcement and matrix, interface and interphase, mechanical properties and strength, micromechanics, lamination theory, short-fiber composite, non-destructive testing.
