Introduction to Composites

This course introduces the variety of different matrix and reinforcement materials available, their specific mechanical and physical properties, as well as their use in engineering and advanced composites. This course also describes the benefits and drawbacks of using polymer-, metal-, ceramic-, and carbon-matrix composite materials and discusses appropriate applications for each. Composites are popular manufacturing materials due to their ability to exceed the properties of any individual material. An understanding of the different types of composites is necessary in order to know their appropriate applications. After completing this course, users will be able to distinguish between the different types of composites and understand their specific uses.
