ME 477 - Introduction to Composite Materials


3 Credit(s)

Students study the use of composite materials (fiber reinforced plastics) for advanced components. Students are introduced to the structural advantages of various composites, including laminate theory and the use of sandwich construction. This is followed by a discussion of manufacturing approaches to fabricate composite parts. Throughout the course, contemporary issues in composite materials are studied using a project-based approach. By the end of the course, students should be able to identify applicable areas for the use of composite materials, as well as the most appropriate manufacturing approach.
Prerequisite(s): Senior status.
