Module | Review Fundamentals of Polymers and Polymer Composites


 

Collapse All Expand All


Many modern technologies require material with unusual combinations of properties that cannot be met by conventional polymeric materials. This is especially true for materials used in aerospace, marine and transportation applications where lightweight and high-strength materials are preferred. This module aims to provide students with knowledge on the selection and characterisation of polymer materials, modifying or tailoring the properties of polymers and polymer composites for specific applications through the incorporation of additives, addition of fibre reinforcements, controlling the matrix and reinforcement interface, design and evaluate fibre-reinforced polymer composites through theoretical and computational modelling, as well as conduct the structural and stress analyses of fibre-reinforced polymer composites through the finite element method. Upon completion of this module, participants will be equipped with the knowledge and application skills to design and develop polymer composites with defined structural properties.
    


This course is for manufacturing professionals, managers, engineers and technicians involved in polymer-based manufacturing processes and product design.

 


  • Essential knowledge in polymer and polymer composite materials provided
  • New technology advancements and business trends for polymer and polymer composites products introduced
  • Highly practical and intensive course taught by expert trainers in the field with industrial experience
  • Case studies highlighting industrial applications studied
