Open Lecture: Introduction to Fiber Composite Materials
Lecturer: Dr. Thomas Krassnitzer, Head of Structural Engineering at Diamond Aircraft, Austria
|When? ||12 October | 11.00-12.30 pm
|Where?||Wiener Neustadt Campus | Lecture Hall 6|
The lecture starts with a general introduction – definition of the term „composite materials,“ explanation of their purpose, examples, and inner structure of composite materials.
More details of fiber composite materials follow – inner structure, applications, advantages and disadvantages, and common fiber and matrix materials.
We will then discuss mechanical properties of fiber composite materials: anisotropy, failure modes, glass transition temperature, fatigue properties, and crack propagation. Finally, a brief overview over calculation methods will be presented.
