Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:1. Identify the properties of fiber and matrix materials used in commercial composites, as well as some common manufacturing techniques.
2. Analyze and design elastic properties of both long and short fiber composites based on the constituent properties.
3. Evaluate function and performance of composites using stress, strain and stiffness tensors and ideas from matrix algebra.
4. Explain and understanding linear elasticity with emphasis on the difference between isotropic and anisotropic material behaviour.
5. Analyse a laminated plate in bending, including finding laminate properties from lamina properties and find residual stresses from curing and moisture.
6. Create and design engineering structures and projects associated with fibre-composites.
7. Predict the failure strength of a laminated composite plate.
8. Gain knowledge of issues in fracture of composites and environmental degradation of composites.
9. Use the ideas developed in the analysis of composites towards using composites in engineering design.
10. Continue to develop the ability to critique and synthesize literature, review results and to apply the knowledge gained from the course in developing new ideas; in designing and evaluating scientific investigations; and in assessing, interpreting and understanding experimental data.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
