    Cure Process Control & Validation for Composite Manufacturing

    <p>The course is designed to introduce the technology to a wide range of composites personnel including material & process engineers, FAA inspectors, technicians, QA personnel, and process equipment operators. </p><p>The course has been designated to demonstrate engineering, certification and manufacturing methods for implementation of available technologies both within limits of existing specifications and to enable greater use of these technologies in future designs.</p><p>Over the five days the course will proceed from legacy platforms through model based control is intended to instruct the student in both the science and the methods for composite processing. For those wishing to attend for three days and with interests limited to manufacturing within current design specifications; these topics will be concentrated in the period Monday thru Wednesday. For those whose interests are in methods to expand the design envelope, the period Wednesday thru Friday will demonstrate features not included in current industry specifications.</p><p>Emerging technologies are focused in two areas. The first is limited to better means to measure and manage the sensors such as temperature that exist in current specifications. The second is to better model and manage material state and thereby to implement better control and process optimization within legacy specifications and to develop newer specifications that more accurately control degassing, consolidation and cure as the material changes state. </p><p>To effectively implement material state management will require collaboration between those writing specifications and those interpreting and implementing the specification. Each of these tasks become more effective if the material state is known and critical properties can then be managed. Broadly speaking the goal of this course is to educate and demonstrate that better methods are possible and can be implemented at all stages of composite processing. </p><p>The course will review the state of the art and demonstrate recent advances in technology. A discussion period will be held on the challenges of implementing material state management. Hands on training will be provided for basic tools required for implementation.</p>
