The following subjects will be presented and discussed during the school lectures:

  • Introduction to the damage mechanics of composites and strategies for design against fatigue
  • Simplified (homogenized) approach to the life prediction of composite parts
  • Advanced modelling of damage evolution (transverse cracking, delamination, fibre failure, stiffness drop associated to damage evolution)
  • Effects of manufacturing on damage evolution, experimental evidence and modelling
  • Fatigue of bonded connections, experimental evidence and modelling strategies
  • Methods for Structural Health Monitoring via electrical resistance measurements
  • Application exercises
  • Industrial case histories
