CEE 6760 Advanced Composite Materials
Lecture: MW 2:55 - 4:10 HLS 368
Spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.
Topics center around micromechanical and statistical (reliability) aspects of the strength and fatigue of fibrous composites. Topics include Hedgepeth shear-lag models of stress transfer around arrays of fiber breaks; statistical theories of composite failure to forecast reliability; stress distributions around holes and cuts in composite laminates; and compressive strength of composites.
