CAMX 2020 | Composites 201
This session builds on the information presented in Composites 101 with more focus on fiber reinforcements, polymers and comparisons of materials to provide a greater understanding of FRP composite materials and properties and performance. An in-depth overview of common manufacturing processes including the process and product characteristics will be covered as well as fundamental criteria for designing with composites highlighting and comparing the benefits and advantages of common materials.

Learning objectives:
1) Learn the material properties on a variety of fiber reinforcements, common thermoset and thermoplastic polymers, and their performance differences.
2) Understand which manufacturing processes should be used based on the characteristics of the process and the resulting products made from that process.
3) Learn the general guidelines and fundamentals in the design of FRP composites products.
