This course covers the theory of the mechanics of composites, design considerations and the environmental aspects of composites; the courses have been constructed in close collaboration with Airbus UK to serve as an industry-led introduction to composites and their application in the aircraft and other industries; they provide the background understanding of the issues behind the use of composites in aerostructures and other transport applications, in manufacturing of composite detail and assemblies, the mechanics of composites and how they differ from isotropic materials; this course provides a conversion course for those with backgrounds in metallic structures as well as a comprehensive introduction to composites and their industrial exploitation.
