Objective of this Master
This master is designed to provide trouble-shooting and solution-oriented approach of problems encountered in composite applications, successively during the constituants selection, processing and mechanical design phases. Mostly fiber-reinforced organic-matrix composites will be of concern in this curriculum.
Such composites materials and structures are strongly influenced by the constituting materials and the processing stage. Therefore composite mechanical design can be efficiently and optimally performed when one has a good understanding of the manufacturing's influences and constraints.
Therefore the curriculum offered within this master program will provide a theoretical emphasis on the relationship between constituants, processing, process modeling and structural design. Through lab sessions dedicated towards characterization, manufaturing, process modeling and design, their links and interactions will be underlined.Fields of applications:
The courses rely on theoretical and applied cases given by the course leaders. Fields of applications are numerous: from energy (wind, marine), trasportation (automative, aeronautics, rail, marine), and also niche markets such as sports and leisure or bio-medical.Labs
The Master "Materials Processes and Technology of Composites" relies on the faculty and staff members, and on the scientific and research facilities of the GeM Institute
"Institut de Recherche en Génie Civil et Mécanique"
