About the Group
A Lecture Series for the Composites Manufacturing and Simulation Center at Purdue University
Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
By the end of the lecture series, participants should:
- Be conversant with orientation descriptors, standard measurement techniques for fiber orientation, fiber orientation and fiber length models used in injection and compression molding software, and how orientation enters mechanical property predictions.
- Understand the fundamentals of orientation descriptors and prediction well enough to apply and/or extend the models to other composite materials and processes.
- Be able to do calculations involving orientation tensors in Matlab.
