Structural Mechanics of Fibre Reinforced Composites

The lecture deals with the structural analysis of fiber composites. Due to the anisotropic and inhomogeneous material properties, the analysis this is significantly more complex than e.g. for metallic materials. Therefore, models for analysis are presented and the special features of dimensioning this type of materials, which is important for lightweight construction, are discussed.
