CAMX 2017 preview: Abaris Training Resources
Abaris Training Resources Inc. (Reno, NV, US) is highlighting its composites education programs as well as related engineering and technical service offerings. Abaris senior staff members will be on hand to discuss newly updated short courses in such engineering topics as structures, sandwich panel, joint, and repair design and analysis, as well as technical topics that include manufacturing best practices, mold fabrication, resin infusion, adhesive bonding, nondestructive inspection and structural repair. Special emphasis is placed on active learning in the classroom and workshop settings. These programs encompass a variety of advanced composite technologies, including newly updated courses in “Cure Management & Process Control for Composites: In and Out of Autoclave,” and “General Aviation Composite Repair.”
Abaris senior staff members Lou Dorworth and Dr. Rik Heslehurst each is giving a pre-conference tutorial on Monday, Sept. 11. Dorworth’s tutorial, titled, “Surface Preparation & Adhesion Principles: Successful Bonding of Composites,” is 9:00 am-12:00 p.m. in W208B. Heslehurst’s tutorial, titled, “Determination of Composite Material Allowable Properties,” is 1:00-4:00 p.m. in W207B. Booth T-43.
Designers envision aircraft components that do more than bear structural loads, but must first confront great complexities to actualize greater functional efficiency.
