COURSE OBJECTIVES:

The 3-day intensive course is aimed at presenting and review in depth the three major and essential parts of a composite : matrices, reinforcement agents and interface/interphase of the matrix/reinforcement agent. Relationship between these different parameters and their respective influence on the final mechanical properties will be discussed.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND THE COURSE:

The course is aimed at engineers and research scientists who are involved in the concept of composite products to solve engineering problems of the aeronautical, automobile, mechanical, civil and other engineering industries.


BENEFIT OF ATTEND THIS COURSE:
Have a better understanding of a composite and how the reinforcement agent can strentengh a material
