EML4230 Introduction to Composite Materials

EML4230/EML6232 INTRODUCTION TO COMPOSITE MATERIALS/LAMINATED COMPOSITE MATERIALS

“Do not give them any more straw to make bricks with, as your custom has been; let them go and find straw for themselves” (Exodus 5).

Although man-made composites have existed for thousands of years, the high technology of advanced composites has been used in the aerospace industry only for the last sixty years. The applications are becoming diverse ranging from aircraft structures and missile canisters to tennis racquets and fishing rods. The objective of this course is to analyze and design fiber reinforced composite materials.
