MFGC 2800 - Composite Design and Fabrication


This course focuses on the design of composite materials involving the reinforcement of bonds and materials in molds using lay-up process, binders comprised of fibers, filaments, and composite material processes where threads are woven using a warp and fill. An examination of the composite manufacturing processes which include vacuum bagging, resin transfer molding, filament winding, infusion molding, and the process for manufacturing fiber-reinforced plastics with constant cross-section or pultrusion. The course will explore design and fabrication methodologies including the use of heat and curing techniques, separation of bonds, catalysts to strengthen bonds, the use of positive and negative molds. The course includes practical skill development with layup lab work.
