Great Bay Community College High Performance Fabrication (ACM 257)

This course will teach students to use all the customary materials, tools and equipment for the manufacturing of high performance composites. The course covers composites processes, materials, equipment and supplies. Fundamentals of mechanical behavior of composites are taught. Processes covered in class room and hands-on setting will include vacuum bagging, resin infusion, wet pregging and prepreg lay-ups with ambient, oven and/or autoclave cures and post cures as well as concepts of filament winding and compression molding. Students will be introduced to the importance of fiber orientation, compaction, flow behavior, accessory materials and supplies for different processes.
