Prerequisite
Knowledge of Engineering Materials.
Rationale
The course on Composite Materials has become very essential for a Metallurgical / Materials engineer to meet the demand of the today’s world applications, where advances in Technological needs demands High strength, corrosion resistance, fatigue / creep resistant & stiff structure with very lesser densities such as in making of automobiles, aircrafts, space crafts, Sports items etc. This course covers various classes of composite materials, their constituents’ phases, manufacturing techniques, characteristics and tastings of the composites and relevant applications in various fields. This course also covers the state of the art fabrication techniques of composite materials and brief introduction to Hybrid composites, green composites & Nano-composites which are currents under trends of research. The aim of this course is to make students conversant with the latest technological materials in demand & their scope of applications.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
- Understand the significance of advanced materials.
- Compare the set of technological properties of the advanced materials with the conventional materials.
- Distinguish the construction, constituent’s phases & characteristics of the composite materials.
- Calculate the strength of the composite under transverse & longitudinal loading applications.
- Identify the strengthening mechanics adopted in a particular type of composite material.
- Explain the fabrication techniques of different types of composite materials.
- Explain the need of the research in the composite materials to fulfill the demand of the hi-tech applications.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos,animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should be submitted to GTU.
