For the candidate who desires a deeper knowledge and a more thorough understanding of composites, then High Peak Courses provides you with a very credible four weeks training, allowing you to learn without the hurry. You need no prior knowledge or experience of composites, because the course is designed to introduce you gently to the essential practical aspects of design for manufacture and analysis of composite materials.
During the course there will be live composite component manufacturing demonstrations using popular techniques and visits by specialist composite companies.
At the end of the course you will have understanding and experience of different composite manufacturing materials systems, using glassfibre, carbonfibre, Kevlar, silicon carbide fibres and biocomposites. You will be able to design composite laminates based on strength or stiffness requirements. You will be able to make structural stress analysis of the monolithic or sandwich panel laminates using simple hand calculations.
You will construct a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) composites model and run the analysis using industrially recognised FEA software such as MSC Patran-Nastran or Femap-NX Nastran and for Femap you will receive a free 45 day licence.
The course designer started as a Stress Engineer on composites in 1984 whilst at British Aerospace and has tailored this course to provide extensive but selective information and techniques to the student that he has acquired over the decades since.
Day thirteen and fourteen. Composite Joint design. Adhesively bonded. Mechanically fastened.
Day fifteen and sixteen. Composite particulates, Biocomposites
Day seventeen and eighteen. Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
Patran-Nastran and Femap/NX-Nastran FEA.
Introduction to the FEA simulation software.
Workshop 5: Hands-on FEA for students
The student will build FEA models in either Patran-Nastran or Femap/NX -Nastran software (free version for student)
Day nineteen and twenty. Composite Finite Element Model Analysis (FEA)
The student will build FEA composite models in either Patran-Nastran or Femap/NX -Nastran software.
