CHE 386 Composites

This course introduces students to the structure, properties, and processing of engineering composite materials. The emphasis is on the modeling and understanding the behavior of fiber reinforced materials. Topics to be discussed include: selection of fiber and matrix materials, strength and stiffness of fiber reinforced composites, elastic stress-strain relationships, laminated composites, fatigue and impact properties, composite-environment interactions, and the experimental characterization of composites.
