Teaching methods

Other activities


The course explains basic principles of composite effects, different between traditional and composite materials, advantages and disadvantages of their use. The course presents the overview of types of materials used for matrix and reinforcement manufacturing. The subject also discussed the technology of composite and reinforcement manufacturing, 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.
