Course Description

This course deals with the analysis and design of structural element composites constituted of orthotropic laminates such as laminated beams and plates. The course looks at their strength, deflection, and buckling, as well as the mechanics of their fracture. Also a finite element formulation is discussed.

Objectives

  • To enable the student analyse and design structural elements constituted of orthotropic laminates, basing on their strength, deflection, and buckling, as well as the mechanics of their fracture.
