A new course will be offered on Lightweight Design Using Composites.
Lightweight design using composites will delve into the fundamental principles and applied engineering in the design of composites structures. Starting from mapping the design requirements, the course reviews the materials selection strategies and then explores various material models for composites modeling including multiscale modeling approaches and how those models are enabled in the performance prediction of composites structures. Further, the course explores different composites manufacturing processes from simulation standpoint and then couples the materials models with their process design and response output to develop a manufacturing-to-response pathway. Overall, the composites design, modeling, process and response architectures at systems level will be explored that yields the optimal design of composites structures.
