Composite materials are nowadays extensively used in applications where outstanding mechanical properties are necessary in combination with weight savings. Their increased use has presented new challenges to engineers, largely due to the highly complex failure mechanisms of composite materials but also due to the many uncertainties that can exist in their manufacturing process.

This summer school aims providing young engineers and researchers a rapid knowledge of the state-of-the art in the field (nature and structure, processing, properties and applications in different sectors) via a hands-on training experience. More info can be found in the Summer School Flyer (Flyer SSCM DYNACOMP 11-13_07_2017_V1-4).
