About this course:

This course introduces participants to practical hands-on information, data, and techniques for designing composite airframe structures with respect to design regulations and specifications. It covers a broad range of aircraft configurations, from transports and fighters to general aviation aircraft. The course provides technical understanding and practical knowledge in advanced composites, emphasizing design and manufacture to achieve a sound airframe structure. All aspects of composite design are discussed in a thorough and rigorous fashion, including guidelines, observations, design factors, pros and cons of design cases, and troubleshooting techniques. The basic theory of composites and practical laminate strength (or stress) analyses are introduced to size airframe composite structures. Another goal of this course is to give composite engineers a practical design tool that contains broad data and information gained from past experience and lessons learned in the design and fabrication of composite components. This tool can then be used to design low-cost and weight-efficient composite structures with structural integrity. Homework assignments and quizzes are given every day in class.
