Abstract : The lectures are directed to the practical application of composites to structures. The scope includes a lecture on design considerations involving material selection, fabrication techniques, and tooling concepts. Stress analysis is covered including knockdown factors, load transfer concepts and analytical techniques. The Lecture Series concludes with a lecture on qualification requirements and practical consideration in inspection and testing techniques. These lectures are not geared to the day-to-day developments at the very forefront of technology, but rather to state-of-the-art concepts, techniques, and materials that when combined will assure a high probability of success in achieving design goals for cost as well as weight savings.
