Enroll Now February , This course introduces participants to practical hands-on information, data, and techniques for designing composite airframe structures with respect to design regulations and specifications. It covers a broad range of aircraft configurations, from transports and fighters to general aviation aircraft. The course provides technical understanding and practical knowledge in advanced composites, emphasizing design and manufacture to achieve a sound airframe structure.

All aspects of composite design are discussed in a thorough and rigorous fashion, including guidelines, observations, design factors, pros and cons of design cases, and troubleshooting techniques. The basic theory of composites and practical laminate strength or stress analyses are introduced to size airframe composite structures.

Another goal of this course is to give composite engineers a practical design tool that contains broad data and information gained from past experience and lessons learned in the design and fabrication of composite components. This tool can then be used to design low-cost and weight-efficient composite structures with structural integrity.

Homework assignments and quizzes are given every day in class. Niu Conmilit Press Ltd. The notes are for participants only and are not otherwise available for sale or unauthorized distribution Coordinator and Lecturer Michael C.

As department manager in charge of various structural programs there, he was responsible for the development of innovative metallic and composite structural design concepts applicable to current and future advanced tactical fighters and advanced transports.

He also was involved in conceptual and preliminary airplane design, and was lead stress engineer responsible for the L wide-body aircraft wing and empennage structures. During and he served as stress engineer for the B, B, and other aircraft at The Boeing Company in Seattle.
