Pre-Conference Workshop on Advanced Composites – Design, Analysis & Manufacturing:

Hands-on training on advanced composites – Design, analysis and manufacturing using wet layup and matched die tooling techniques resourced by Dr. Vijay Sahadevan. Dr. Vijay has worked for ISRO Satellite Structures Group between 2000-2002 and then moved to overseas to pursue PhD at France. Post his PhD, he has worked across a number of composite projects ranging from piezoelectric composites based structural health monitoring, advanced composite wing structures to thermally insulated door for aircraft galley equipment. He has worked on a number of composites projects involving detailed design, industrialisation and certification for OEMs and tier-1 suppliers including Airbus, Boeing, Rolls-Royce, Bombardier Aerospace, Gulfstream, Embraer, Dassault Aviation, GKN Aerospace, Atkins and Ipeco. The hands-on workshop covers the following topics:

    • Session 1 – Composite Materials & Processes (theory)
      • Fiber reinforced plastics
      • Manufacturing processes
      • Material & processes selection
    • Session 2 – Hands-on matched die moulding (practical)
      • Tooling concepts
      • Resin preparation
      • Wet lay-up
      • Matched die assembly and curing
    • Session 3 – Composite Product Development (theory)
      • Lamina Properties
      • Micromechanics
      • Composite Construction Methods
      • Classical Laminate Analysis (CLA)
      • Design Principles
    • Session 4 – Hands-on matched die moulding (practical)
      • De-bulking
      • Finished product inspection and quality
      • Questions & Answers / General discussions

This pre-conference workshop will be held on 3rd April 2020, afternoon at TANSTIA. A separate registration is required for this practical yet highly valued training. Places are very limited and filled on first come first serve basis. Early-bird registration fees for this pre-conference workshop including composites training kit is Rs. 500 per participant.
