Full course description
A composite part increases its strength by adding plies with fibers at different orientations. Engineers use computers and software to design composite parts and determine the number and orientations of each ply so that the finished composite part will be strong enough to withstand expected and unexpected loads in the final product.
By the end of this course, you will be able to
• Define the differences between a balanced and unbalanced layup
• Understand the effects both balanced and unbalanced layups have on the finished composite part’s strength
