GME-015
Composite materials and structures: calculations, design, deployment - 2019

Design calculation and manufacture of composite material structures

OBJECTIVE :

This course enables learners to acquire and apply essential knowledge for sizing, manufacturing and certifying structures made of composite materials, particularly in the aeronautical or space sectors.

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

The course lasts 5 days (30 hours) and includes:

  • 13 x 1.5-hours lectures
  • 2 x 3-hours practical work sessions
  • 1 visit (3 hours)

GENERAL APPROACH :

The first part aims to provide the basic knowledge regarding the behavior of composite structures in order to fully understand the calculation methods used in the industry.

The second part details manufacturing processes.

The third part allows learners to create and test a test piece they have previously calculated.

PREREQUISITE :

Course level: Advanced

Knowledge of the resistance of elementary materials "homogeneous, isotropic and elastic materials" as covered in course GME 008 "Structure mechanics" or the course from S. LAROZE - R.D.M. at Eyrolles - Masson.

Samuel RIVALLANT:

Professor at ISAE-SUPAERO(Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace or National Higher French Institute of Aeronautics and Space)

Christophe BOUVET:

Professor at ISAE-SUPAERO.
