AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The goal of the course is to provide the students with the basic knowledge of the different types of composite
materials. The description of the main technologies used to produce short and long fibers reinforced
composites follows. The tests and the controls used to characterize the composites are described. The
course is completed with the description of the joining techniques.

TEACHING METHODS

Lectures and laboratory

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

First of all, mechanical and thermal characteristics of CMC, MMC and PMC are described, referring to the
standards. The description of the technologies used to produce composites with different kinds of matrixes
and/or different types/geometries of reinforces follows. The course continues analyzing the main
nondestructive controls used to verify the quality of a composite. The bonding techniques to realize
structural joints are described.
