Pre-Conference Short Course - April 9, 2018

DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS FOR AEROSPACE STRUCTURES

Technical Contacts: Alaina Roberts (alaina.d.roberts@gmail.com) and Robert Goldberg (robert.goldberg@nasa.gov)

This 8-hour short course is designed for both engineers experienced with composite materials as well as those with minimal composites knowledge who are interested in learning more.  The course will begin with an overview of the evolution of composites and then focus on a number of fascinating case studies outlining specific and practical aerospace related civil engineering applications for composites used across industry, government, and academia. 

Check site often – other details will be posted as they are finalized.
