About this Course
This is the first course in the Certificate in Aircraft Composite Materials & Manufacturing. This course provides engineers with a strong and relevant understanding of aircraft composite materials and the qualities that differentiate them from metal materials. Learn how to identify major classifications of polymers, fibers and composites. Understand typical mechanical and physical properties of constituents and examine major fiber product forms. Gain knowledge of the quality control approach to composite constituent materials. In interactive class sessions designed for Boeing engineers, develop knowledge and skill in composite materials that will contribute to your professional success.
- Micro-mechanical behavior of composites
- Fiber surface treatments (use of sizes, coupling agents, etc.)
- Fillers and other additives
- Incorporation of fibers into matrix
- Environmental effects
- Quality control
