SENSOR PRODUCTS AND BTG COMPOSITES ANNOUNCE TECHNICAL SEMINARS

August 2, 2004
"Composite Materials Design, Testing & Fabrication" is a two-day seminar developed to educate engineers and other technical personnel about all conventional and cutting-edge aspects of composite/FRP materials, design and analysis, testing and fabrication techniques. Topics covered include: primary resin and fiber reinforcement construction materials; general composites design methodology; traditional fabrication techniques; advanced manufacturing technologies; sandwich core and foam design; composites test and inspection methods; and failure criteria. Though theory is included, the course emphasizes practical design consideration for selecting material in order to optimize design and application performance. Design for manufacturability, economic practicality and weight consideration as important tradeoffs are also addressed. The seminar is beneficial for aerospace, military, materials, infrastructure, energy and transportation industry engineers who are involved in any materials selection and characterization, composites design and manufacturing, product optimization, and testing and inspection certification (NDT, NDI, QA). The "Composite Materials Design, Testing & Fabrication" seminar will be held in Salt Lake City, UT, Aug. 30-31, and in Tampa, FL, Oct. 4-5.
