Class ARCH 564
Class Title Advanced Materials Structures
Description This course introduces the application and design of alternative materials such as glass, fabrics, aluminum, metal alloys, fiber composites, and laminates that are used structurally in architectural construction. Comparisons are made by studying their application through transfer technology in the automotive, aerospace, biomechanical, and other related industries. Their properties and structural behavior are explored qualitatively through digital design and material stress analysis and applications are studied through prototyping and laboratory testing.
