MECHANICS OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS

CIV5MCM

2020

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, you will learn the fundamental principles of the mechanics of composite materials and apply these principles to design of fibre composite laminates. You are provided with a solid grounding of the properties of composite materials, processing and manufacturing methods, micromechanics and lamination theory and the design of composite structures.
