- student will be able to formulate basic principles of composite effects - student will be able to characterise types of materials for the matrix and reinforced phases and methods for their preparation - student will be able to explain interaction between matrix and reinforced phases, influences on composite materials properties - student will be able to describe the technology of composites and to acquiant with specific applications of composites

Teaching methods

Other activities


The course explains basic principles of composite effects, differents between traditional and composite materials, advantages and disadvantages of their use. The course presents the overview of types of materials used for matrix and reinforcing phases preparation. The subject also discussed the technology of composite and reinforcing phases preparation, interaction between matrix and reinforcing phases and influences on composites properties. There are also present fields of the use of composites and principles of materials choice for specific application.
