Description

In this course, we’ll walk you through the fundamentals of composite materials –  what they’re made up of, how they work, and their advantages and disadvantages compared to other materials.

This includes everything from a simple definition of a composite and some common terminology, through to the ingredients of composite materials and their typical characteristics.

Along the way, we’ll cover a brief history of composites, look at different types of reinforcing fibres and plastics, and see how the arrangement of the fibres can affect the properties of a finished part.

This course is an ideal introduction to composite materials for people working within the composites industry, be they scientists or engineers who don’t have a background in composites, or those in non-technical roles who need to be conversant with the language of composites. It’s also suitable for those outside the composites industry who are looking for a gentle introduction.

Who is the target audience?
  • People working within the composites industry, be they scientists or engineers who don’t have a background in composites.
  • Non-technical people who need to be conversant with the language of composite materials.
  • People working outside the composites industry who are looking for a gentle introduction.
