Theory & Computation of Composite Materials

when 22 July 2019 - 16 August 2019
language English
duration 4 weeks
credits 5 EC
fee EUR 1950

Learn the theory of elasticity for composite materials used in lightweight structures such as airplanes, race cars, laptop covers. Write your own code and simulate deformation in composite materials. Work on solving engineering problems in elasticity in a small team.

Course leader

Dr.-Ing. Bilen Emek Abali

Target group

Students that have completed the following courses:
- Introduction to Solid Mechanics
- Mechanics of Materials
- Differential Equations
- Linear Algebra
- Programming Methodology (or worked with any programming language)

Course aim

The emphasis of this course is on a theoretical understanding of problems in continuum mechanics, especially elasticity of composite materials.
Participants will understand elasticity theory, laminate theory, and apply it by solving various engineering examples with open-source codes in Python.
