Analysing the pros and cons of two composite manufacturing methods

Aeroplane wings, wind turbine blades, and other large parts are typically created using bulk polymerisation in composite manufacturing facilities. They are heated and cured in enormous autoclaves and heated moulds as big as the finished part. Frontal polymerisation is a new out-of-autoclave method f...

THE ESSENTIAL COMPOSITE DESIGN, ANALYSIS and MANUFACTURE COURSE. High Peak Courses and DJ-RaceCars announce; A four day composite workshop for hands-on experience. Monday 10th February 2020. Location: Bowden Hey Rd, Chapel-en-le-Frith, High Peak SK23 0QZ United Kingdom. This workshop is hands-on design, analysis, manufacture and validate. This composite workshop provides training in the methods used to design a structural composite and the methods used to manufacture the designed prepreg carbonfibre composite component. The composite training workshop is suitable for beginners, engineering students, graduate engineers, composite fabricators and enthusiast who want to start understanding how to design a suitable composite laminate. This is not an advanced composite workshop course. The intention of the course is to provide you with the ability to make an initial composite design, the structural analysis, manufacture and validation. You will obtain a level of confidence to assist your development. Basically, a complete composite package. COMPOSITES DESIGN: You will learn; · how to design a structural carbonfibre prepreg composite laminate beam. · how to calculate the number of carbonfibre plies to give you the stiffness and strength that is required for your lightweight component. COMPOSITES MANUFACTURE: You will learn; · to manufacture the prepreg carbonfibre composite beam that you designed in day one and use the autoclave to cure it. DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE TOOLING for a racing car nosecone: · You will use professional and industrial established Cad package, SolidEdge by Siemens to draw up your tooling for a racing car nosecone design. · We will make the tooling using either CNC or 3D printing techniques. MANUFACTURE THE CARBONFIBRE COMPOSITE · You will hand layup the prepreg carbonfire onto the tool that you have made to form the nosecone and prepare the carbonfibre composite layup for vacuum bagging and for the autoclave. TEST and VALIDATE the carbonfibre beam · to test the carbonfibre composite beam and compare the test results against your design calculations (i.e. validation and quality control). By the end of the course: You should leave with a fundamental understanding of how to design a suitable laminate, prepreg manufacture, test validation of a simple composite component, make a simple tool design in SolidEdge, manufacture a carbonfibre racing car composite. You should have gained confidence in the initial design, analysis, manufacture and test validation of structural composites. You will take home the course notes and the carbonfibre beam you designed, the racing car nosecone tooling and carbonfibre nose cone that you made on the course. Course presenters: Dr. Warren Leigh PhD Del Quigley Niall Carmichael NOW: SPECIAL OFFER Price of the four day course is £1550 inc VAT and includes; Book before 31st December to get £100 off the above published price. Morning and afternoon, Tea, Coffee and biscuits. Lunch included.. Next course starts on Monday 10th February 2020. Only eight places are available. Please contact; Dr. Warren Leigh.
