The CompositesWorld Expo 2009 features a two-track conference (Sept. 28-29) and a two-day trade show (Sept. 29-30). The Introductory conference track will introduce those familiar with traditional materials — engineering industries, such as metalworking — to the properties of fiber-reinforced composites. Other principles covered will include CAD/CAM design and manufacturing with composites and the fabrication processes that work best for various designs, including compression and infusion molding; resin transfer molding (RTM), vacuum-assisted RTM (VARTM), and light RTM (LRTM); prepreg with autoclave curing; and other fabrication processes.

The Advanced conference track will include an overview of finite element analysis (FEA) design and manufacturing software, such as CATIA and FiberSIM, and how it can be integrated into product development and tooling systems for advanced composite design and processing, including complex ply books, automated fiber placement (AFP) and automated tape laying (ATL) systems.
