Educational opportunities. Overviews of manufacturing and processing (M&P) technologies. Most recent technological advances. Critical materials support areas. These are all covered by the six tutorials selected by the SAMPE Organizing Committee for presentation at the International SAMPE Technical Conference in Baltimore, MD, November 4-7, 2002.
Tutorials have always been a strong focus of SAMPE in providing the most up-to-date and concentrated package of technology information to its conference attendees. Always popular, and a big draw to professionals, students and novices to the material and process engineering community, the six tutorials offer a broad opportunity for increasing education on critical topics.
The six tutorial topics, covering both “basic” and “advanced” technology subjects across the materials and process engineering industry are shown below:
Composite Materials: Introduction & Overview
Design and Analysis of Composites
Resin Infusion Processes: RTM, VARTM, SCRIMP,
RFI and VIP Technology
Manufacturing Aerospace Composite Sandwich
Printed Circuit Boards: The Electronics Composite Structures
