Introductory Training Course in Advanced Materials & Composites

17 Feb - 02 Mar 2019


Last Date for submission of Application: as per ITEC division

Course Content (Technical):

This course has two parts:

  1. Lecture series on mechanics, manufacturing, design, and analysis of advanced materials and composites.
  2. Basics of solid mechanics, concepts of isotropy and anisotropy, introduction to advanced composite materials, classification of composites, rule of mixtures, classical lamination plate theory (basic terminology, notations, laminate stresses, laminate strains, coupling, hygrothermal effects), failure criteria (max stress, max strain, more complex criteria, first ply failure, Tsai-Wu, Tsai-Hill, carpet plots, etc.), design philosophies (infinite life, safe life, fail safe, damage tolerant), fatigue of materials (stress life, strain life, damage tolerance approaches), processing of polymer composites (hand layup, hydraulic press, vacuum bagging method, autoclave method, resin transfer molding (RTM), vacuum assisted resin transfer molding (VARTM), etc.), mechanical property characterization of composites (tensile, compressive, fatigue, impact, interlaminar shear strength, etc.), defects and damage in composite materials, “effect of defects” on mechanical performance, non-destructive techniques (ultrasonics, X-ray, etc.)

  3. Practical demonstration on processing of composites, non-destructive testing, and mechanical characterization of composites.

Eligibility Criteria:

i. Participants must belong to one of the ITEC countries.
ii. Participants should have at least a Bachelor’s degree (from a recognized University) in Aerospace, Mechanical, Civil, Materials or Metallurgical Engineering. Master’s degree holders in Physical Sciences can also apply.
iii.Faculty member teaching courses in related area may also apply.
iv. Recent graduates/Fresher’s may also join this introductory course.
v. A Statement of Purpose (One page write-up about research interests and/or research work carried out) must be provided.

All are requested to follow up with the mission with respective country for joining letter and visa.
