ATI Composite Materials for Aerospace Applications course

Share |


    Technical Training Short On Site Course Quote

      This three-day course is designed for mechanical or materials engineers and managers that are going to use composite materials, i.e., graphite/epoxy, etc., in aerospace and military applications. This will allow mechanical and materials engineers to use simplified "design" equations needed to estimate the type of laminate for their design. The course also offers engineering managers the opportunity to see the complexity involved in composite design. Each topic will include worked numerical examples. Specific applications from SPFIE, MSX, NEAR, and other programs will be presented.



      Dr. Jack C. Roberts is a member of the Principal Professional Staff at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, Research Professor and Lecturer in the department of mechanical engineering. Dr. Roberts has worked on composite electronic enclosure design for SPFIE, CEC, composite design for Navy ship hulls, composite design for avionics electronic enclosures, composite design for biomedical applications and composite design for orthopaedic applications. Dr. Roberts holds the degree of Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He teaches in the Mechanical Engineering program at Johns Hopkins University and is author or co-author on 50 publications.

      Paul J. Biermann is a materials and process engineer and a member of the Senior Professional Staff at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, with over 27 years experience in design, manufacturing and characterization of composite materials and engineering polymers. His has worked on composite components for spacecraft, biomedical applications and for undersea deployment. He has an extensive background in composite cure and assembly techniques, polymer molding and casting, tooling and mold fabrication, adhesive bonding, and test equipment and methods. He holds the degree of BS in Materials Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Mr. Biermann has 16 published papers. He also holds 12 US patents.

    What You Will Learn:

    • What are the constituents of a composite, the analysis, tooling and fabrication processes used to consolidate a composite component?
    • Understand the effects of fabrication variables on the properties of the composite material.
    • What are generic mechanical and physical properties of composites versus traditional engineering materials?
    • What are the limits of composites?
    • What is a lamina, a laminate and how does the stiffness of each lamina contribute to the overall stiffness of the composite?
    • How are stiffness and rigidity used to form two sets of equations that link the in-plane forces and moments?
    • How to calculate initial estimates of stresses within a lamina.
    • What are various strength criteria, including the Tsai-Wu failure envelope?
