Welcome to Composite Materials 1.
If you want to learn about these materials, how to use them, and be part of this world, this course is for you!
What will you learn?
You will learn all the principles and theory that involve composite materials to understand what they are, their components, and what they can be used for in different applications, focusing mainly on the Naval Industry.
You will learn specific terminology, different processes, basic chemistry knowledge in the use of polymer matrix, how to properly read material datasheets, and criteria to select the correct or most convenient production processes, procedures, and materials for the particular project you may be working on.
Once this knowledge is settled, you will develop, together with the instructor, a basic laminate calculation spreadsheet for composite materials, which will be a very helpful tool to be used in your future projects.
After the course, you will be able to apply the knowledge acquired to use composite materials in manufacturing components and products.
The course is video-based and on-demand and can be followed at your own pace.
It contains videos, quizzes, and downloadable documents and gives access to the course’s classroom, a virtual place to interact with the instructor and fellow students.
Students completing the course will obtain the Course Certificate.
- Video lessons.
- Written documentation (196 pages).
- Calculation templates (spreadsheets).
- Course Certificate.
- To follow the course, it is not necessary to have any prior knowledge of composite materials. However, a technical or engineering background will help you during the journey. Also, a basic background in physics and mathematical concepts is assumed.
- A minimum Navalapp membership level of “Subscriber” (free membership) is required to enroll in this course.
