    Design of Lightweight Structures: Composites and Metals
    Weight reduction is a key factor in the development of materials and components in many industries. Lightweight structures are widely used for this purpose. However, these structures present challenges: they need to be light but also safe, durable and easy to maintain. How can this be done?

    This online course, starting 5 September 2022, will answer this question by teaching you the design principles of lightweight structures; their durability and fatigue; testing; manufacturing methods and mechanics. The main focus is on structures made with composites but use of metals will be addressed as well.

    Sounds like my kind of course.
