Composite Sandwich Panels

Composite Sandwich Panels

This module, created by Brian D. Finn of the University of Washington, "investigates the fundamental aspects of designing composite sandwich panels." These boards are commonly used to create surfboards, wake boards, and corrugated cardboard. They are also heavily implemented in the aerospace industry; this includes items such as wing flaps, aircraft floors and overhead storage bins. The module features an abstract, objective, curriculum overview, procedures, mathematical calculations and references. In the end, students will learn to build, test and analyze the strength of these composite materials.
